Scale

Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 (18.5-oz) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 (3.4-oz) package white chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 3 apples, peeled and diced (I had about 3 cups of diced apples)

Icing

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar*

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease and flour a 12-cup bundt pan. Alternately, spray with baking spray (not nonstick cooking spray).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, water, eggs and apple sauce. Beat with a hand mixer for 2 minutes. Fold in the apples.
  3. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes.
  4. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool for 10-20 minutes, then turn out to cool completely.
  5. Once cool, make the icing: in a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, brown sugar, salt and whipping cream. Cook, stirring constantly, until the butter melts and the mixture comes to a boil. Allow the mixture to boil for one minute, then remove from the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  6. Gradually whisk in the powdered sugar until smooth. Immediately pour the icing over the cake and allow it to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes:

*I would sift the powdered sugar to avoid any clumps in the icing.
