Honey Caramel Apple Bundt Cake 2

This recipe is my entry in August’s Bundt Bakers which I am hosting. I chose this month’s theme which is honey and could not be happier with the outcome of this cake. I love honey and rarely bake with it. Things have gotta change here. I adore the smell of honey and the taste of it when baked into a cake, however make a honey caramel and you’ll be transported to a new level of caramel heavens.

We’ve been experiencing some cooler weather here in the UK (thanks heavens) and it’s making me think and feel like autumn isn’t to far off. I love love love autumn, it’s my favourite season. I love baking autumn cakes and bakes and will grasp any opportunity to do so.

In the last few months I’ve made a certain golden confection that I thought I’d never make myself. Caramel! I always thought it was really tricky and that I wouldn’t be able to make it but I’ve got news for you, it’s not hard at all. All you need to do is follow the instructions and always pay attention.

So far I’ve made Salted Caramel which I used for my Salted Caramel Crunch Banana Bread, butterscotch caramel which I used for these amazing Brown Butter Peanut Butter Cookies Bars with Butterscotch Caramel Sauce and I also made a simple caramel for these Caramel Crunch Brownies. So as you can see I like my caramel a lot! Honey Caramel Apple Bundt Cake 6

If like me, you love your caramel then this recipe has your name on it. It also makes more caramel then you need, so perfect for drizzling on more tasty treats. One which I’ll have for you shortly which makes use of the honey caramel for this recipe. This recipe uses a method I’ve used a number of times when making my own caramel. Follow these easy steps and you’ll have a delicious homemade honey caramel.

Get yourself a medium-sized, heavy based pan and to this add your sugar, honey and some water. Place over a medium and let it bubble until it turns an amber shade. Do not stir, but swirl the pan instead and if any sugar clings to the side of the pan, brush it off with a pastry brush dipped in water. Once it’s reached amber, remove from the heat right away, step back making sure you don’t put your face too close to the pan and add your butter and cream. It will foam and bubble up, simply stir to form a thick glossy caramel and transfer to a heat proof bowl to cool down. This will get drizzled all over your cake, sinking into the cake where it will meet more honey, crunchy apples and apple pie spice.

The cake smells of honey, apple pie spice and once you cut in and take a bit you’ll be met with crunchy apples. It’s a very simple recipe which takes no time at all putting together. It’s oil based therefore it doesn’t contain butter or milk. As with moist oil recipes it’s a quick method of mixing all the wet ingredients together in one bowl and in another bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Stir the wet into the dry mixing until the dry ingredients just disappear. If you over mix this you’ll end up with a heavy and tough cake.
