Apple, Chestnut Honey, Cinnamon & Vanilla Bundt Cakes – Tortine alla Mela, Miele di Castagno, Cannella & Vaniglia

Music: Feels Like Home, Chantal Kreviazuk. Apples from our garden, chestnut honey my aunt makes (her bees, actually…), cinnamon and vanilla from my day-dreams. These small, sweetly pungent bundtcakes will make you wanna lose yourself and take you all the way back where you belong, no matter where you are. A window breaks, down a long, dark street and a siren wails in the night but I’m alright, ’cause I have you here with me and I can almost see, through the dark there is light. Well, if you knew how much this moment means to me and how long I’ve waited for your touch. And if you knew how happy you are making me, I never thought that I’d love anyone so much.


180 gr flour

1 Tsb starch

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

120 gr butter, melted

50 gr brown sugar

50 gr chestnut honey

1 vanilla bean, seeds

cinnamon, powdered

2 apples, finely grated

2 eggs

1 pinch salt

granulated sugar and cinnamon, for the coating

Mix together the flour, the baking powder, the salt and the cinnamon. In another bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, the chestnut honey, the eggs and the vanilla seeds. Add the melted butter and mix. Add the honey mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the grated apples. Pour into bundtcake moulds and bake at 180° C for about 20 minutes. In the meantime, mix together some granulated sugar and cinnamon powder. Let the cakes cool a few minutes and when they are still warm, toss them in the sugar/cinnamon mixture.

  3. oh god! … this has to be so wet and soft. Apples are one of the best additions that you can make a bundt. Makes it exceptionally delicious. I copied the recipe, I will prepare at home. Besos
