This caramel apple Bundt cake is a classic dessert that defines the phrase “sugar, spice, and everything nice.” Cinnamon, tart apples and gooey caramel all come together in a moist, sweet cake that’s delightfully dense. 

  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x



Cake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped (optional) 

Caramel Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  •  pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9-inch bundt pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the sugar, oil, vanilla, egg and applesauce until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until just incorporated.
  • Gently fold in the diced apples and nuts (if using).
  • Pour the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan.

  • While the cake is cooling, prepare the caramel sauce.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine all sauce ingredients. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Once completely cooled, flip the cake onto a serving plate, poke holes in the cake with a skewer and pour caramel sauce generously all over, reserving some sauce for serving.
  • Serve warm with additional caramel sauce drizzled on top.
