I bought this fancy new cake tin. I have been drooling over this tin for weeks and I went back and forwards over buying it. It is a Nordic Ware cake tin, they are a little more expensive but well worth it. To buy them in Australia Williams Sonoma Australia the Bundt pan is the same price here in Australia as you would pay in America funnily enough.
So while waiting impatiently for my Bundt pan to arrive I was doing some "research" and trolling the Internet for Bundt recipes. This is a take on a Martha Stewart recipe but I did change it up to suit myself.
If you live in a dairy free household, this is a great recipe for you, just swap the butter for margarine and your away.
You can either buy applesauce from the supermarket or make your own. It is apple season here in Australia so good time to make it, if you are having a roast pork this weekend make a double batch and you can have some for your dinner as well. Roasted applesauce recipe is below.
2 1/2 cups Plain flour
2 teaspoons bi carb soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
200 gm butter or margarine, room temperature
2 cups light brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 cups Applesauce
Cream together butter, brown sugar and honey until light and fluffy, remember to scrape down the sides to ensure everything is mixed through.
Beat in your eggs one at a time, turning the mixer on high for 30 seconds between each addition to ensure mixed through.
In a separate bowl add your flour, bi carb soda, cinnamon and mix together with a whisk.
Add your applesauce.
In thirds gently add your flour mixture and mix until just combined.
Drop your mix into a prepared pan and bake in a pre heated 175C oven for 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes then turn onto a cooling rack.
Serve as is or warm with a small scoop of ice cream or dollop of whipped cream.
Tip: if you turn your cake onto a tea towel on your cooling rack you will not get any rack marks on the base of your cake.
