I love one-bowl cake recipes! This applesauce bundt cake is so simple to make and so delicious! Simple is always best!
This cinnamon applesauce cake uses very simple everyday ingredients: flour, baking powder, cinnamon, butter, brown sugar, eggs and applesauce. There is a good chance you already have everything you need in your pantry :)
Have everything except applesauce? If you don’t want to leave the house to get it at the store, you’ve got 2 options: order applesauce on Amazon to have it shipped to your door or make your own applesauce using my easy applesauce recipe!
Making this amazing applesauce cake is really easy! All you need to do is mix the ingredients in one bowl, pour the batter into a Bundt pan and bake! This recipe is perfect for beginner bakers, there is really no way to mess it up! This applesauce cake always comes out so beautiful and tastes so good!
To decorate this applesauce bundt cake, simply sprinkle it with powdered sugar. No frosting needed – powdered sugar makes this cake look and taste complete!
Below is the picture of how the cake looks before it’s inverted. It’s hard to believe it’s the same cake :) Whatever you see on top becomes the bottom of the cake when it’s flipped over, and the top will be smooth and beautiful and sprinkled with powdered sugar!
This applesauce cake is baked in a full-size Bundt pan (10 to 12 cup capacity). If you want to make a small cake, you can halve the ingredients and bake it in a small Bundt pan (5 to 6 cup capacity). If you are using a half-recipe and a small pan, reduce the baking time to 45 minutes. Bundt cakes are so pretty and make great homemade food gifts!
If you don’t have a Bundt pan, you can also bake it in a regular rectangular 9×13 inch pan. Just bake it until the toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

I just made this today for our family. It was a BIG hit! Moist, sweet (but not excessively so), and delicious when warm. I love a cake I can serve without a need for icing! It’s great for trips to the lake, also!
I have a recipe like this but for a 9 x 13 inch pan so the ingredients are slightly less. I sometimes mix up the dry ingredients together and store it in a baggie so that when I want a cake, I just have to add in the wet ingredients. It’s even better if you add about 3/4 cup of raisins to it.
I have made this using my homemade applesauce. Delicious! Then, by substituting 1 can of pumpkin puree for the applesauce and pumpkin spice for the cinnamon, it makes a beautiful pumpkin Bundt cake. Sometimes I dust with powdered sugar or I make a lemon glaze. Thank you for such an easy and versatile recipe!
Loved by all. Ran short on applesauce so made up difference with pureed fruit,nice and moist with an excellent texture. Will be making again!
Can this recipe be baked as cupcakes?
Yes, it will work as cupcakes! Baking time for cupcakes is 25 minutes at 350F.
Easy, excellent recipe! I made this cake exactly as directed for Thanksgiving breakfast. It was moist and delicious. I used a nordicware wreath pan, it was perfect.
I would like to add nuts. Will the texture be affected?
Nuts would work great
Can you use cinnamon applesauce in this recipe?
Yummy! Added a touch of homemade vanilla and grated a tad of nutmeg into the batter!
Do I have to spray or coat the bundle pan before adding my cake mixture? I always have problems with my cakes sticking
then breaking once I try to loosen the edges. Thank you for this recipe, I wish to give it as a gift?
Yes, to be safe it’s a good idea to spray the pan with the non-stick cooking spray.
I made the cake today and it was awesome ?
I will definitely be making this again and again ?
Thank you so much for sharing this recipe ?
I made this today to use up cinnamon applesauce, but made it in loaf pans. It was very moist and slightly dense.
Rather than sprinkling powdered sugar on top, I added a praline glaze and sprinkled pecans on top.
Made the cake today – perfect texture and taste – thank you!
My family loved this cake!
I made this and it was absolutely delicious. Everyone that had it felt the same.I did add a little extra cinnamon and felt like it needed a little more flour, so I added a few spoonfuls, maybe my applesauce was too runny. For baking I always use the scoop and level method unless
it says otherwise.
I am going to bake little mini cakes as holiday gifts this week, it will make the perfect sweet bread.
