To me Fall is all about apples. I know the world is crazy about pumpkin everything these days, but apples are and will forever be the original fall craze. I recently made this great Honey Apple Bundt Cake recipe that is just to die for. Seriously, if you try it you’ll be saying “Pumpkin who?” And it just looks stunning because of this new Turk Head Mold I tried from For The Chef. When food looks pretty we eat with our eyes too!
The old pan I was using for my cakes was a mess. It was the type where no matter how much spray or grease you’d use to coat the pan, you’d still wind up using a knife to pry it out of the mold. OMG I was so delighted to invert this cake and feel it release from the pan instantly. It was the most effortless nonstick pan I’ve used in a long time.
I really love the design on this Turk Head Mold. While the origins about where this design and type of mold came from are disputed, I think we can all agree that it’s beautiful. I’m so happy For The Chef had it so I could make this awesome cake with it!
The cake forms a sugary crust while it bakes and the apples provide enough tang to balance out the sugar. And the honey glaze tastes ahhhmazing! I rarely bake with honey because it’s a little tricky to use as a sugar substitute but it really works as a glaze. Tai and I were drizzling as much as we could onto our slices of cake, but then again we both have a wicked sweet tooth.
