Apple Spice Pecan Bundt Cake

APPLEPECANCAKE

With fall on its way, this Apple Spice Pecan Bundt Cake makes a great seasonal dessert. You can use whichever type of apples you prefer. I usually use Granny Smith apples but I had some Gala apples so used those instead. I love apple desserts. Try my Apple Roses, Apple Cheesecake Bars, and Caramel Apple Pie Bars. You can also make muffins instead of a cake.
