Author: Linda Lomelino


  • Cake
  • 420 g all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 225 g softened butter
  • 375 g granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 300 g apple 1 ¾ cups diced
  • zest from 1 orange
  • Cream Cheese Glaze
  • 100 g cream cheese
  • 120 g powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice


  • Preheat oven to 350 ° F. Butter and flour a 10 cup bundt pan. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cardamom and cinnamon in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Beat the butter until creamy, about 2 minutes. Gradually add sugar and beat until the mixture is light in texture and color, about 3 minutes.
  • Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add flour mixture and sour cream in additions.
  • Scoop about 1/3 of the batter into the pan, smooth with a spatula and sprinkle with some apples. Put the rest of the batter and the apples in layers, smoothing the top.
  • Bake cake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan on a cooling rack for 10 minutes, then invert it onto the rack. Let cool completely.
  • To prepare glaze, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until creamy, about 1 minute. Add orange juice and beat until completely smooth. Pour glaze/icing over the cooled cake.
