Apple Harvest Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze


This is a fantastic Bundt cake that my grandmother used to make for Thanksgiving. It has been a family favorite for years!

1 to 9 - inch bundt cake


  • 2 cups white sugar

  • 1 ½ cups vegetable oil

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 eggs

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and chopped

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

  • ½ cup butter or margarine

  • 2 teaspoons milk

  • ½ cup brown sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch Bundt pan.

  2. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; stir into the batter just until blended. Fold in the apples and walnuts using a spoon. Pour into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the crown or the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes then invert on to a wire rack.

  4. Make the glaze by heating the butter, milk and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar, then remove from the heat. Drizzle over the warm cake. I like to place a sheet of aluminum foil under the cooling rack to catch the drips for easy clean up.
