Apple Cake

Apple Bundt CakeFall is a celebration for me.  The scents, the colors, the rich flavors.  They make my whole being come alive.

There are few fall recipes that will make your home smell as warm and welcoming as this one.  It just screams ‘old fashioned’ and delicious.  I’ve played with different variations of this cake for the last few years and have finally tweaked it to be my ultimate, go to fall cake recipe.  It was good in its original form, but now, it’s just scrumptious!
