  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 medium apples, cubed (honeycrisp, fuji...something firm)
  • Butter for pan

Maple Glaze and Toppings

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup crushed sliced almonds


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 12 cup bundt pan with butter.
  • Dry ingredients: In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon until evenly mixed and distributed.
  • Wet ingredients: In another large bowl, combine eggs, melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and yogurt until evenly combined and smooth.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and using a whisk or a rubber spatula, mix until batter is combined and even, without overmixing. Using a rubber spatula, fold in diced apples. Batter will be thick.
  • Spoon batter into prepared bundt pan and smooth the top. Carefully, bang the pan on your counter to further distribute the batter and totally fill the pan with batter.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes, until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack completely (don’t remove can from pan yet!). Once cooled, very carefully invert cake onto a cake stand or large round plate.
  • While cake is cooling, make the glaze: melt butter and maple syrup in a small saucepan. Remove from heat whisk in confectioners sugar and a pinch of salt. Let it cool a bit.
  • Once the cake has cooled down completely, drizzle glaze on cake, top with chopped pecans and crushed sliced almonds.
