Inspired by a fall favorite, these bundts have all the trimmings! A java infused cake is speckled with spiced apples, then cloaked in white chocolate, grated chocolate and a caramel drizzle.
I have been going crazy this season with apples. My creativity was put on hold due to a cold but now that I’m better, I’m feeling inspired all over again!
So, the last time we spoke I mentioned caramel and apples – a match made in heaven. Alas, I got my wish and so did you.
#BundtBakers have joined forces to bake our favorite beverage-inspired bundts, and our lovely hostess, Laura, is back again to lead the pack.
It was a tough call this month because there are so many drinks out there that would have been perfect for this challenge.
Ultimately, I decided to keep to the autumn theme because you know, fall is just another word for latte season 😉
I started with a white cake mix base and kept it relatively low-fat by adding apple sauce in place of butter and oil (the more apples, the merrier) and then added a cup of good, really strong coffee for a rich, golden batter. I folded in spiced apples, which also added to the beautiful hue.
Good thing these cakes are low-fat because when it came to toppings, I went all out. I covered these gems up in white chocolate, then dusted with chocolate shavings, and if that weren’t enough, I went to town with the caramel sauce.
The result was a super moist cake, bits of warmly spiced apples, a hint of coffee and a whole lot of yum!Print
