Ginger Fruit Bundt Cake

I recently tried out a new recipe that combined a few different recipes I’d seen into one.   Ginger Fruit Bundt Cake… delicious! This recipe can be made with apples or pears and even zucchini! I also enjoy mixing all of those ingredients together for interesting textures and flavor combinations.

Ingredients:

4 medium apples, pears or 4 small zucchini – cut into 1/3 inch pieces

1/4 cup candied ginger cut into tiny pieces (about 1 cm)

4 tablespoons honey

2 1/2 cups sugar

4 large eggs

1 cup olive oil – not extra virgin just plain

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups all purpose flour

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

5 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon salt

Maple syrup

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil and flour 12 cup bundt pan. Mix apples, pears, or zucchini with honey, ground ginger, 3 teaspoons cinnamon and chopped candied ginger. Set aside in bowl. Combine 2 1/2 cups sugar, eggs, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla in large bowl. Mix/Whisk to blend. Stir in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt into egg mixture.  Spoon 1 1/2 cups batter into bundt pan. Top with half of fruit mixture. Cover with 1 1/2 cups batter then add remaining fruit mixture. Cover with batter.

Bake cake until top is brown and test toothpick comes out with moist crumbs, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Run knife around sides of bundt pan to loosen cake. Turn cake onto rack to cool for 45 minutes.  Lightly brush with maple syrup. Serve warm or at room temperature.
