Thanks to my friend JustJenn of JustJennDesigns (check out her great stationery!) for making the logo!

It's Day 3 of I Like Big Bundts: 30 Days of Bundt Cakes...and today it's a yummy fall treat! For those just joining me on this crazy baking endeavour, I'm making 30 days of Bundts leading up to November 15th - National Bundt Day.

And, please people, I'm not just doing this for my health! ;) I'm hoping to inspire you to make a Bundt cake! Let me know if you do...Mary Ann of Meet Me in the Kitchen and Maria of Two Peas and their Pod both made Bundts this weekend!

I met Amy of StreamingGourmet at the Foodbuzz Open House and BlogHer Food in San Francisco. She is posting 31 days of pumpkin recipes on her blog! You have to check it out and I'm sure you'll get lots of ideas.

I, of course, was drawn to the Bundt cake: Pumpkin-Apple Spiced Bundt Cake!

I used two cups of granny smith apples...diced into small bite-sized pieces.

Don't worry if the mix gets a bit curdled. It'll all come together in the end.

Apple and pumpkin. Friends forever.
This cake is delicious.
Hands down.
Make this cake!

It is light, moist, full of fall flavors and Not. Too. Sweet. With "only" 1 cup of sugar, the flavors of the pumpkin and apple aren't overwhelmed by sweetness.

See you back here tomorrow and every day from now til National Bundt Day (November 15th) for another Bundt! - mary the food librarian

Yet another gorgeous looking bundt cake! I want to eat them all. This pumpkin and apple spice one sounds divine!

I've heard a lot of people that are anti-apple and pumpkin being mixed together. I've been kinda intrigued and as I have 25lbs of apples and 5 cans of fresh pumpkin puree... I was hoping to mix the two in something!!! Thanks for the bit of encouragement I needed to try it!

Another fabulous recipe! I cannot resist such a glorious combo!



Karin said... [Reply to comment]

That looks delicious! And even though I haven't made a bundt since you started your baking adventure, I have used my bundt pan more times since I started reading your blog (about a month or two ago) than since I bought it!

Yikes! What am I going to do? you posted another pumpkin bundt recipe!!!! How did you know I have been wanting to make a pumpkin-apple cake?1!
It is going to take willpower not to make this today. I will probably whip it up tomorrow.
The other bundt I made was delicious.
This one looks crazy good!

I love bundt cakes, there's something about them. So thank you for the recipes!

I've been wanting to make a pumpkin apple bundt. Yours looks delicious!

Nancy/n.o.e said... [Reply to comment]

I've never tasted pumpkin and apple together but I think I'd like it. Only one way to find out, though, right? Can't wait for the rest...

You know, I've always suspected that librarians have a soft spot for bundt cakes. It just seems natural, doesn't it? I love your bundt concept! (I made what is usually a bundt cake in a kugelhopf pan this weekend . . . does that count??)

:) Jane

I haven't posted it yet, but I just made a recipe very similar to this in small loaves. I was hesitant to put pumpkin and apple together, but it was delicious. Don't you just love those big apple pieces in each slice!
Loving the bundts!

Maria said... [Reply to comment]

I just made a pumpkin bundt cake but I still want to make this one. I love the apple addition! I love your bundt month!

This cake looks wonderful! You inspired me to make a chocolate stout cake over the weekend. I would have posted it on my own blog, but my husband got to it before I could get the camera ready :)

Caroline said... [Reply to comment]

Mary, I am totally loving your 30 days of bundts. A bundt a day is a real treat. I definitely want to try this one.

Unknown said... [Reply to comment]

It looks terrific Mary! I actually made a bundt today with some apples I had hanging around. It's the apple-cinnamon bundt from Everyday Food. After I made it I realized it was on your blog too :)

Pamela said... [Reply to comment]

So cool! I just think it's so cool how the apples are stuffed into that cake. Scrumptious.

Eileen said... [Reply to comment]

I can't wait to try this. Pumpkin and apples - two of my favorites. Thanks so much for sharing!

Monica H said... [Reply to comment]

apples, pumpkin and spice! the epitome of fall. I don't know how this could get better...unless of course I had my own slice!

I like the mosaic look of the cross section.

how fun! a reader just alerted me to your series--I did a brown sugar poundcake today in my mom's old bundt pan.

I love having her old, heavy pan and the familiar design it makes. I'll be back to bookmark some more recipes to use with my pan!

Katrina said... [Reply to comment]

Love the slice with all the apples. I'd never have thought of putting pumpkin and apple together, but duh.

Linda said... [Reply to comment]

This sounds fantastic. On my to-bake list is a recipe for a pumpkin apple pie, but I may try your recipe first. YUM!

lunettes said... [Reply to comment]

Thanks for the inspiration!

Bundts are fun!

Ooo delicious. Funnily enough as I was going through my blog reader your post came up right after someone else's post about a pumpkin apple crumb cake! Pumpkin and apple sounds like a great combo.

I just posted a similar recipe that I made in loaves (I do love a bundt though!). I really liked the apple and pumpkin combination. I'm going to give your recipe a try and compare the two.
Loving your daily posts!

I made this bundt cake this weekend, and it came out GREAT. I'm especially happy that there are leftovers - it's kind of healthy enough for breakfast, right?
