Pumpkin Apple Bundt Cake

Welcome back to Quince Cottage!
With autumn well underway, you may or may not have had your fill of "pumpkin everything". If you haven't, then this is a recipe you'll want to try. It's a moist, dense, not overly sweet, not screamingly pumpkin, cake - ideal for breakfast, brunch, snack, or dessert.
We found it on Pinterest (of course) and credit goes to JuliasAlbum(dot)com. We made only a few changes in terms of ingredients.

2 eggs
3/4 C white granulated sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
2/3 C vegetable oil
1 TBS vanilla extract
1 C pumpkin puree
2 C all-purpose flour, sifted
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 C apples, cored, peeled and diced (about 6 small-medium apples)

Caramel sauce (you can make your own, but we bought a jar)
1/3 C chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat eggs, white and brown sugar until light in color and creamy, about 4-5 minutes.
3. Add oil and vanilla extract and beat 1-2 minutes more. Add pumpkin puree and beat 1 more minute.
4. In a separate medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in apples.
6. Spray bundt pan with baking spray. Pour batter into pan.
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes (toothpick test). Let the cake cool on a wire rack about 40 minutes. Invert the bundt pan onto a serving platter and let cake cool completely.
8. When ready to serve drizzle caramel sauce over the cake (suit your own tastes in terms of how much you use) and then sprinkle pecans over the cake.

This cake is really better after sitting for a day, lightly wrapped, so by all means make it a day ahead of when you actually need it!

You could easily substitute pears for the apples, walnuts for the pecans, etc. At Quince Cottage, we like recipes that are flexible as well as delicious. Enjoy!
Unfortunately this was not a treat we shared with our Irish Jack Russell Terriers - except for a few chunks of apple. You can imagine how hard it is to resist spoiling them.
