Apple Cake

  • 1 1/2 Cups Oil (vegetable or canola)

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Vanilla
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

Bourbon Caramel Sauce

  1. In a medium saucepan, add in all ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir continuously to make sure it doesn't burn.
  2. When the mixture comes to a boil, set a timer for 5 minutes and whisk continuously. 
  3. Let cool in the refrigerator while you make and bake the apple cake. Caramel will start to thicken as it cools.

Apple Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, add in oil, sugar, eggs, salt, baking soda, vanilla, and cinnamon. Whisk well until everything is combined.
  3. To grate the apples, core and add to a food processor with the grater attachment. Peeling the apples isn't necessary. *
  4. Add in 1 cup of flour and mix until combined. Add in half of the apples and mix until combined. Add in another cup of flour and mix. Finally add in the last of the apples, mix and then the last cup of flour.  The batter will be thick.
  5. Pour batter into a well-greased bundt pan and place in the oven. Bake for 1 and 1/2 hours.
  6. Remove from the oven and insert a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean then the cake is finished. Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan then remove and let finish cooling on a baking rack.
  7. Once the apple cake is completely cooled, add the bourbon caramel sauce to the top and enjoy!



  • If you prefer not to add Bourbon to your glaze, just omit it entirely. Add in 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla total and cook according to instructions above.
