Don’t have much time to fuss over a cake and you want something that will make your kitchen smell wonderful with fall spices. Try this quick bundt cake. It is so moist and luscious. There is no reason why you can’t show this off to friends and family. The good part is they will never guess that you started with a box mix. I used a very old bundt cake pan I have had for many years. You can use the older pans with out much trouble if you use a good quality baking spray. I like Baker’s Choice but have also used some of the new ones that are now on the market. The trick to this cake is to be very generous with the spray because it helps caramelize the spiced sugar coating around the crust of the cake. I found that it keeps better if you refrigerate it in hot weather. I live in South Florida. This is also very inexpensive to make. It is real easy on the budget to plan. I buy my cake mixes only when they are on sale. I hope you enjoy.
Sassy Saucy Sugar Bundt Cake
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 2/3 cup apple sauce
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoons cinnamon or apple pie spice
Preheat oven 350 degrees and spray bundt pan with vegetable spray. Mix cinnamon and sugar in small bowl. Take a couple of tablespoons of the sugar mixture and coat the inside of the sprayed or greased bundt pan. Do this by rolling the pan around at an angle and shaking it until coated add more sugar if needed. You will have some left over for the inside of the cake.
Mix the rest of the ingredients on medium speed with electric mixer for 2 minutes. It will have small bits of apple sauce in the batter so it will not be smooth. Pour half in bundt pan and make a ditch with a spoon in it to sprinkle the rest of the sugar mix. Then add the rest of the batter. Lightly run a knife half way down the batter to swirl in the sugar around the pan once. I like to save a little to sprinkle on the top. Bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees until a tooth pick comes out clean. Let cool for about 10 minutes and turn out of pan.
The cake has a sugary gooey coating on the cake’s outside crust and a light color to it. The spice give it a fragrant smell and a hint of spice in the cake. It is a cake that can be made when you are out of money and out of ideas.
