Fall Spice Bundt Cake

Bundt cakes are known for being pretty easy to make, and this Fall Spice Bundt Cake is no exception (don't let the long ingredients list scare you off)...except when you're me.  Still not sure how it happened, but somehow the baking soda didn't make it into the batter before it went into the oven.  Ooops!  Thankfully, the cake still looks acceptable and tastes great.  This caramel glaze is amazing, a must try!

Fall Spice Bundt Cake 

1/4 c butter, melted
1/4 c vegetable oil
6 oz yogurt (plain or vanilla)
2 eggs
1 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar, packed
1 Tbs vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 c ripe bananas, mashed
1 apple, finely diced
1 1/2 tsp baking soda (don't forget it!)
1/4 tsp salt, optional

For the Glaze:
1/4 c butter, melted
1/3 c brown sugar, packed
2 Tbs half & half
1 Tbs vanilla
1 1/2 c powdered sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a bundt pan by spraying it generously with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix together all of the wet ingredients and the spices until you have a creamy substance.  Then add the bananas and apple and stir to combine.  Next add the flour, baking soda and salt and stir until just combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and place in the oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until a tester inserted comes out clean.  Allow the cake to cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes.

While the cake is cooling, make the caramel glaze by melting the butter in a small sauce pan.  Once melted, add the brown sugar and let the mixture bubble for about 2 minutes, stirring continuously.  Remove from heat and let cool 1 minute before adding the half & half.  Whisk until the bubbling calms.  Add the vanilla and whisk it into the mixture.  Then begin adding the powdered sugar, a 1/2 cup  at a time and whisk to combine until all the powdered sugar is added and all the lumps have been worked out.  Add more powdered sugar if needed.

Once the cake has cooled, you can pour the glaze over the cake and be ready to amaze your taste buds!
