The hubby had a meeting and he asked me to make him a treat to take. It is well known that I love a good bundt cake. They are easy to make, provide a nice number of servings and can be dressed up like a Banana Split Bundt Cake or simple and down to earth like oh, an applesauce bundt cake. Almost every year I end up canning applesauce so I only need go to the pantry for the main ingredient. I wasn’t asked to make something fancy so I thought the warm spices and flavors of this cake would be perfect.

How Was the Applesauce Raisin Bundt Cake?

I do not know. All I can tell you is that it smelled heavenly while it was baking and that none came home. That is generally my marker for a well received treat for the hubby’s meetings. I don’t think I’ve sent a bundt cake in that hasn’t been devoured. I know the citrus bundt cake I made was particularly popular. Bundt cakes are easy to make and the flavor options are almost unlimited.
