Equipment

  • bundt pan

Ingredients

APPLE CAKE

  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 cups apples peeled, cored and chopped

BROWN SUGAR ICING

  • 1/4 cup salted butter cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar

Instructions

MAKE THE CAKE

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and generously spray a 12-cup bundt can with cooking spray. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer), combine the butter, oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla and beat on medium speed until creamy and free of lumps.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Mix well. Gradually add to the butter mixture and beat on medium speed until just combined. Fold in the apples.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Use a butter knife to loosen cake from edges of pan and carefully invert the cake onto a serving plate. Allow to cool completely.

MAKE THE ICING

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar and milk. Heat over medium, stirring, until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla and confectioner’s sugar. Whisk until creamy and free of lumps. Let sit for 10 minutes.

ASSEMBLE THE CAKE

  • Whisk the icing again until it is creamy and drizzle over the cooled cake. Cut into pieces and serve!
