I've been playing with a recipe and finally decided that I would test it today.

The aroma that flowed through the house while this was baking was just out of this world wonderful!

Apples, cream cheese filling and a praline topping, does it get any better...well if you add toasted pecans it might! And you know I added em!

Hope you enjoy!!

How to Make Apple Pie Cream Cheese Bundt Cake w/Praline Toppin

Step-by-Step

  • 1CREAM CHEESE FILLING: Beat cream cheese, butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended and smooth. Add egg, flour, and vanilla; beat just until blended; set aside.
  • 2CAKE BATTER:
    Preheat oven to 350º.

    Bake pecans in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through. Remove from oven; set aside.
  • 3In a large bowl: whisk together 3 cups flour and next 7 ingredients; stir in eggs, canola oil, apple pie filling and vanilla; stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in toasted pecans.

    NOTE: chop the apples (from apple pie filling) into small pieces. I used kitchen scissors to cut into smaller pieces.
  • 4Spoon two-thirds of batter into a greased and floured 14-cup Bundt pan.
  • 5Spoon Cream Cheese Filling over batter, leaving a 1-inch border around edges of pan. Swirl cream cheese filling through batter using a paring knife.

    Spoon remaining batter over Cream Cheese Filling.
  • 6Bake at 350º for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

    Cool cake in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes; invert onto plate, and cool completely.
  • 7PRALINE FROSTING:

    Over medium heat in a 2-qt saucepan bring brown sugar, butter, and heavy cream to a boil, whisking constantly; boil 1 minute.
  • 8Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
  • 9Gradually whisk in powdered sugar until smooth; stir gently 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture begins to cool and thickens slightly.
  • 10Pour immediately over cooled cake. Sprinkle toasted pecans on top if desired.
