2 cups granulated sugar

1½ cups vegetable oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 large eggs, room temperature

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

1 ½ tsp salt

3 medium apples, peeled, cored. and chopped


Caramel sauce:

½ cup (1 stick) butter

2 tsp heavy cream

½ cup brown sugar (packed)

1 tsp vanilla extract




Preheat the oven to 325°F and grease a 9-inch bundt pan.

In a large bowl, beat the sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggs with a mixer or whisk until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, in a separate bowl then stir into the batter until both are just blended.

Fold in the apples, then pour them into the prepared bundt pan.

Bake for 55-70 minutes or until an inserted toothpick (or knife) comes out clean.

Allow to cool for about 20 minutes in the pan and then invert onto a wire rack.


Caramel sauce:

Heat the butter, heavy cream, and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Bring the saucepan to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar, then remove it from the heat.

Add in vanilla and stir until combined. Let sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken.

Drizzle over the warm cake!
