Fru-Gal's Kitchen: Dairy, Egg, and Nut-free Apple Bundt Cake!

This cake is similar to a quick bread in taste and texture. The cinnamon, nutmeg, and apples give it a wonderful, spiced taste... a great precursor to the approaching Fall season.

Dairy, Egg, and Nut-free Spiced Apple Bundt Cake(Recipe from

1 1/4 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
1 T. vanilla extract
3 c. unbleached all purpose flour
1 T. baking soda
1 T. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
3 c. peeled, grated apples (about 4, any variety but I love granny smith and braeburn)
Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a Bundt baking pan with Dairy Free Baking Spray.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the sugar, oil, applesauce and vanilla until combined.
