I’ve been craving a fall dessert and tried a recipe that I spotted in the September 2016 issue of Southern Living Magazine, Apple-Spice Bundt Cake with Caramel Frosting.
What gives this cake its unique flavor?
Southern Living described this dessert as an update on an old-fashioned Southern cake with the warm spice of chai, an Indian tea.
I’ve never tasted chai tea and I’m guessing that cardamom and coriander added to the cake batter are what gives this bundt cake its unusual and very good flavor.
It also includes apple and pumpkin pie spice
The cake also is flavored with grated apple and pumpkin pie spice.
A cream cheese filling adds another dimension of flavor.
Since I have an uncontrollable sweet tooth, the best part to me is the caramel icing made with heavy cream and cooked on the stovetop.
Suggestions for Serving
This cake is scrumptious served at room temperature but could also be warmed slightly to bring out the aroma of cardamon and coriander.
If you’re feeling extra indulgent, serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Of course, a cup of coffee would be perfect to enjoy with this dessert.
Enjoying this Cake
This bundt cake won’t last the week at my house even though there are only two of us eating it.
I’ll admit that we put a pretty big dent in it after I made it on Saturday.
