Apple Spice Bundt Cake with Browned Butter Frosting


Once again, my love affair with browned butter continues. I just can’t help myself. Browning butter fills me up like few things can. And, yes, I realize how sick that sounds. But it’s the truth. Browned butter and bacon take me to my happy place. What can I say?

My two favorite recipes to bake with browned butter are banana cake and these blondies. Today I’m not baking with the browned butter but using it in an icing that gets poured over a still warm apple cake.

Be still my beating heart.


And we can we just take a minute and give a little shout out to the bundt cake? I honestly think the bundt pan is nothing short of genius. It allows bakers who might be a little handicapped in the decorative department (*ahem*) make stunning desserts. And, they are just so darn easy.


The Mr wanted apple pie a few weeks back and not wanting to disappoint him but also not up to making a pie from scratch I settled on this cake. Aside from peeling and dicing the apples, the cake was super quick and easy to put together. Unlike my husband who was happy with one piece after dinner, I ate the cake over the course of three or four days. Literally. As you can see in the second picture, I sort of demolished it. A little bite here, a little bite there………and for what it’s worth, I think the cake was at its best on day two. Eaten for breakfast with a cup of coffee. ‘Cause that’s how we I do things around here.
