  1. I am making this recipe for my church. I have one question.
    when you pour the batter in the bundt pan will all the apples fall to the bottom of the pan or will the stay mixed within the batter.

  2. The apples stay mixed in the batter. This is a wonderful moist cake and the caramel drizzle combined with the apple flavor is fabulous! Let me know how you like it. I actually made this fo a luncheon at my church and it was a huge hit! Enjoy!!

  3. This is the perfect recipe for the season! Can't wait to try this, love pudding recipes :) Kelli
