Most Asked Questions About This Easy Apple Cake
What are the best apples to use in this cake?
It’s best to use a combination of apples, some for sweetness, some for crispness and some for moistness. I prefer to use both the Fuji ad Honey crisp variety.
Can you freeze this cake?
Absolutely. It freezes well and will keep about 3 months in the freezer. Once cooled, I like to keep this cake in the refrigerator and take it out about 1 hour before serving since it tastes better at room temperature.
Can I keep this apple cake on the counter?
Yes, but it will not last as long and make sure that it is well covered with plastic wrap so it doesn’t dry out.
How do I know when this one bowl apple cake is done?
The easiest way is to insert a toothpick into the center, if it comes out clean it is done. You can also tell if it is done when the cake starts to pull away from the sides of the bundt pan. Thirdly, you can try lightly touching the top of the cake. If it springs back, it is done. If it leaves a depression, it needs to cook a little longer.
