Apple~Cinnamon Bundt Cake


2 cups all purpose white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp apple pie spice
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup cinnamon apple sauce
4 large eggs
5 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4 inch thick

1 cup powdered sugar
2 T apple juice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together the white flour, whole wheat flour, apple pie spice, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

In a large bowl, whisk together the butter, brown sugar, apple sauce, and eggs until smooth.  Add the dry ingredients and whisk just until combined.  Use a rubber spatula to fold in the apples.  Pour batter into a 12-cup Bundt pan and smooth top

Note:  The batter will be very thick and just barely coat the apples.  The apples with release their moisture and the batter will become cake.  Don't worry!

Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 15 minutes.  Invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the glaze, stir together powdered sugar, apple juice, and cinnamon.  Spoon over top of cooled cake.  Enjoy!
