I was searching around the internet for fall-type recipes and came upon a blog called Fresh Approach Cooking . There, I found this super yummy apple bundt cake recipe. It is one of the most moist recipes I have ever made. The brandy really gives it a great flavor.
You can add 1 cup pecans (or any nut) with the apples if you want. I used 2 Granny Smith apples and 2 Fuji apples ~ both peeled.

Apple Bundt Cake
2 cups flour
2 tsps cinnamon
1 1/2 tsps nutmeg
1 tsp cloves
pinch of salt
1 cup of butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar (I used light brown but the author suggests dark)
4 large eggs
1/4 cup brandy
1 tsp baking soda mixed with 1 tbsp warm water
4 apples, cut into large chunks
1 cup nuts, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 350º. Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray and then sprinkle with white sugar.
Combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt together and set aside.
Using a mixer, beat butter until creamy. Then beat in the both sugars. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the brandy, baking soda and water. Stir in the flour mixture and then add the apples and nuts until just combined.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Let cake cool completely. It’s delicious with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Makes 12 servings.
