Servings 16 servings


  • 1 ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp cardamom
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 ¾ cup Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour
  • ¼ cup corn starch
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 ½ cups apples peeled and chopped ¼ inch

Caramel Glaze

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • cup dairy-free heavy cream Ripple Half & Half or nutpods creamer
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • cup pecans or walnuts chopped


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Butter and flour a standard bundt pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together the oil, sugars, vanilla, and spices.
  • Whisk in the eggs, one at a time.
  • Whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt, and fold into the wet ingredients. Fold in the apples.
  • Pour into your prepared bundt pan and spread out if needed.
  • Bake for 65 – 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Let cool completely before frosting.
  • In a small saucepan on medium-low heat, cook the butter, brown sugar, and cream stirring constantly, until it comes to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in the powdered sugar until smooth. If the frosting is too thick, add a small amount of cream, and if it's too thin add more powdered sugar. Put it back on the heat to loosen it if it stiffens too soon.
  • Immediately pour the glaze over the cake, letting it drip down the sides. Top with the chopped nuts while the frosting is still soft.
