Apple Bundt Cake

I love cooking so I decided, Hey, why not just post a recipe on my blog? It needs help.

So here it is. I found a recipe online last week and couldn't wait to try it. But being me, I couldn't follow the recipe so it's a little bit different, which is good because I don't remember where I got the recipe in the first place... Just a heads up: the apples in this cake make it really moist, and I thought that it tasted way better the next day; although there was absolutely nothing wrong with it the night I baked it haha

Apple Bundt Cake:
1 1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
1cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 cups tart apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup raisins (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350*. Grease and flour a bundt pan and set it aside.

Mix oil, sugars, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. (I couldn't bring myself to put 1 1/2 cups of oil in my cake so I substituted some of the oil with applesauce but you don't have to do that.)

Add flour to the bowl then add the salt, baking soda and cinnamon and stir just until combined.

Mix in the apples, walnuts and raisins. Pour it into the prepared cake pan, or have your brother hold the bowl so you can scrape the sticky dough out. *cough cough*

Then bake it in the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck into the cake comes out with just a few crumbs or clean. In my oven I think that was a little bit too long so next time I'm going to check it after an hour and go from there.

Then when the cake comes out of the oven, let it cool for about 10 minutes and hope with all your heart you greased and floured the pan well, shake the pan a little bit to loosen the cake then flip it upside down on a cooling rack and let it cool. Voila!!! Slice and enjoy :)


 And if your dad is anything like mine he won't think the cake is finished unless it has a glaze or frosting of some sort... so I made a toffee sauce to go with the ice cream too.

If anyone makes this recipe I'd love to hear how it worked out for you :)
