TWD - Double Apple Bundt Cake

Hostess this week: Lynne of  HoneyMuffin


With my trip to Myrtle Beach coming up, I thought this would be the perfect cake to make to take with.  I love anything with apples and double apple sounds doubly good to me!  And it is fall now and to me, apples just go with fall weather!  The double in this recipe is shredded apples, along with apple butter!  The hardest part of making this cake was shredding the apples.  I do not like to shred for some reason!

However, because I do not wish to mess up the cake by cutting into it before I get to share it with my friends on the trip, I will not get to taste it until Saturday!  So I am freezing it until then.  And you get the photo of the entire cake, instead of a beautifully cut slice.

I left the raisens out only because it seems I have made several apple things lately with raisens and I wanted to try something a little different.  So I used butterscotch chips and walnuts.

I cannot wait to enjoy a piece of it!
Thank you Lynne for a great pick this week!

So glad you will enjoy the cake w/friends at the beach.
So jealous! Hope you have grand weather.

i like that mix in! I used an old Dorie recipe for apple cake, from her book "Sweet Treats" @ Buttercreambarbie

Wow you are better than me...if I knew it was in the freezer, well, it wouldn't be in there anymore!

You will love this cake! I admire your self control - I couldn't wait. I don't like shredding apples much either - it's hard work - but this cake is worth it.

I bet the butterscotch chips were really good in it. This was the first time I had used golden raisins. I think I would like better w/out.

And your cake IS pretty.

Your double apple bundt cake looks moist and delicious. I know your friends and you will love every bite of this wonderful Fall treat! The addition of butterscotch chips sounds tasty too.

You're the second person I've see who used butterscotch chips. I think I'm going to have to try that. Enjoy your trip, and I hope you all like the cake!

Have fun in Myrtle Beach! That trip sounds like so much fun, and this apple cake is the perfect thing to share with friends.

Hope you get a chance to make the soup for CEiMB because the flavors are wonderful together and the soup recipe itself is quick to assemble. Thank you for stopping by, I always enjoy your comments.

Was this recipe really heavy? I mean, like a pound cake? I have a cornucopia shaped cake pan I want to try out and I need a really heavy cake for it.
