I think the title says everything necessary to make you want to bake this simply gorgeous apple cake. I really can’t take any credit for this beauty, I snatched the recipe from my friend Jamie over at Life’s a Feast for tonight’s Rosh Hashana celebration. I just added some apples, because I never show up to Rosh Hashana without an apple cake. I’m sure it is just as good without them, but we’re right smack in the middle of apple harvest, so why not.

Happy New Year to those who are celebrating today and a very wonderful apple season to those who will make this cake just because it is irresistible.

Honey Whiskey Bundt Cake from Life’s a Feast – I followed the directions exactly, but I added 2 small apples to the mix after I peeled, cored and diced them.

I highly suggest you butter and flour the pan so that you get the cleanest lines from your Bundt Pan.

Just fold the apples in with the nuts if you decide to use them.

Let the cake cool slightly in the pan before removing so it won’t crack.

While the cake is still slightly warm brush with the glaze so it will soak into the cake. I left about 1/4 of the glaze to brush on right before serving.

  1. … delicious!
    Just saw your new book on Amazon – Gluten-Free Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Baking Revolution Continues with 90 New, Delicious and Easy Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Flours coming out October 21. Requested my library get hardcover and eBook. Yay!

  2. Oh, Zoë, gorgeous indeed! I am so so happy that you made this cake for your Rosh Hashanah celebration and I hoped everyone loved it. This is one of my favorite all-time cakes. Yours is just beautiful… I would love to see what a cut slice looks like. And you know now I have to try it with apples folded in. I do want to wish you and your family the Sweetest and Happiest of New Years!

  3. Such a clever addition to an already lovely cake. I live close to the apple capital of the world (I’m not sure if that’s verifiable, but there are a LOT of apples around here), and the u-picks will soon be in full swing! Cake is a great motivator…

  4. This is exactly what I needed and I didn’t even know it. I’m going to the mountains this weekend to visit friends and pick apples. This will be the perfect thing to get us in the mood!

  5. I would like to print some of the recipes but from 6 13 pages is just too much. The recipe sounds so good. Sometimes I just write off the recipe.
