TWD: Brown Sugar Apple Bundt Cake



Peggy I from Pantry Revisited chose today's TWD recipe. No prunes nor raisins nor ground up nuts in my version here. Just a pure and simple pairing of brown sugar and granny smiths. The only change I made was to substitute 1/2 cup strong black coffee for 1/2 cup of the buttermilk. This added another layer of flavor and depth and interest.



Dorie says this is better if kept overnight, tightly wrapped so the flavors can ripen. Ours didn't last long enough for that to happen so I'll just have to take her word for it. Check out Peggy's Blog or The Book for the recipe.

Brown sugar and granny smith apples are perfect! Kind of like autumn in a cake. :)

I love the flavors you used and agree that we'll never know if it improves with age! :)

I made the all hazelnut version and left out the fruits. Mine stuck to the pan so I decided to frost it and it was excellent. Not the simple tea cake that Dorie created, but still excellent!!
