Apple Harvest Pound Cake

Betty Graves


When apple season comes in I usually go to the orchard and get lots of apples to make delicious apple recipes. This one I especially enjoy. It consist of fresh apples, chopped nuts and a divine caramel sauce which makes this cake.

I have had this cake recipe for such a long time. I believe I got it from Betty Crocker recipes. It is moist and delicious for those of you that like apples.

How to Make Apple Harvest Pound Cake


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 12-cup fluted tube/bundt cake pan. In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in flour, salt and baking soda until smooth. Stir in apples and nuts. Pour into pan.
  2. Bake 60 to 90 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes. Remove from pan to cooling rack.
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat all glaze ingredients to boiling, stirring occasionally. Boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly; remove from heat. Spoon glaze over warm cake.
  3. Note: I usually punch small holes in the cake for the glaze to go down in the cake. Not many just enough to give it a good flavor inside the cake.
