Apple Praline Bundt Cake

  Last month I made a turkey dinner and this was our dessert.  I made the turkey the way Michael Simon makes his and all I can say is WOW it comes out so moist and you don't have to do any basting.  I've posted a picture of it in this post at the end.  I will post it again along with the recipe from the show "the chew".  

 My adopted son's parents were in town and I always have them for dinner at least once.  I was really undecided as to what to have for dessert and stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest at this site .   This cake looked so yummy I just had to try it.  It was a big hit and I will for sure make it again.



Apple Praline Bundt Cake


Cake -
3/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup cinnamon apple sauce
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
3 large eggs
3 cups cake flour (you could use all purpose)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
3 cups chopped Granny Smith apples
2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp praline syrup (optional) Praline Glaze -
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
glazed pecans (yep.  I purchased them in a bag.)
Prepare the bundt pan with cooking spray and then granulated sugar (or flour).  Start toasting the pecans.  I put them in the oven for about 8 minutes on 375 degrees.  You need to shake them around every couple of minutes.  Mix together the sugars, oil, and applesauce.  Add eggs and beat well.  Mix the dry ingredients together, then add them to the wet egg mixture.   Fold in vanilla, apples, and toasted pecans.  Batter will be fairly stiff.   The juice from the apples with thin it out as it bakes.  Bake at 350* for 75 minutes or until a long wooden pick come out clean from the middle.  Allow to cool at least 15 minutes in the pan, then turn it out onto a cooking rack.  If desired, brush a praline flavored syrup (or a simple syrup) over the warm cake so it will soak in and keep everything nice and moist.
While the cake is cooling, make the praline glaze.  Stir together brown sugar, butter, and milk into a heavy saucepan.  Bring to a full boil and cook about 2 minutes, stirring continually.  Remove from heat.  Stir in vanilla and confectioners sugar.  Pour over cake immediately before it "sets up."  Garnish the praline glaze with glazed pecans while its still "wet" so they will stick.
Thanks for stopping by,   have a wonderful weekend and Remember to Find the Time do ALL the Things YOU Love.
