It's October and that means Halloween! I love Halloween. I don't know when it started but I have always loved Halloween. I love watching scary movies, getting dressed up in a costume, eating tons of candy, and just basically having a "sweet" month.
To kick it off #BundtAMonth is having Candilicious October with all of our Bundts being baked with candy! I originally went to the store looking for Milky Ways but instead I found Caramel Apple Milky Ways. There is the same wonderful caramel with apple nougat all covered in chocolate.
I made a delicious Bundt cake filled with these Caramel Apple Milky Ways. I originally thought I'd make a caramel drizzle to go on top of the cake but there was no need. It was sweet and tasted of caramel, apples, and faintly of chocolate. It was so good and perfect for a cake to celebrate both fall and Halloween. I took it into work and it was gone within the hour. Not even a crumb was left on the plate!
Caramel Apple Milk Way Bundt Cake (adapted from Telling Dad)
2 c. mini Caramel Apple Milky Ways
1 c. butter (2 sticks)
1 ½ c. sugar
½ c. brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 c. whole wheat flour
½ t. baking soda
1 ¼ c. milk
1 ½ c. all purpose flour
1. Preheat the oven 350 degrees. Grease and flour a Bundt pan.
2. Combine the Milky Ways and 1 stick of butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until everything has melted together and is well combined. Remove from heat.
3. In a large bowl combine the remaining stick of butter and the sugars until it is light and fluffy.
4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.
5. Add in the whole wheat flour along with the baking soda and mix well. Stir in half the milk and milk until combined. Add half the all purpose flour and mix until smooth. Then add the remaining milk and mix until combined. Finish by adding the remaining all purpose flour and stir until everything is mixed together.
6. Pour the melted Milky Way mixture into the batter and mix until just combined.
7. Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
8. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Using a butter knife, go around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake. Place a piece of waxed paper over top of the Bundt pan and flip it over. Allow to cool for an additional hour before cutting.
