This whole wheat honey apple bundt cake is a loaded with whole wheat flour, sweet honey, and fresh apples, and then glazed to perfection. SO good.



For the cake

  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil (I used olive oil)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 minced apples (about 23 cups)

For the glaze

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1¼ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 tbs. maple syrup
  • 12 tablespoons water


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Generously grease a bundt pan (mine is about 9 inches across the top). Whisk the sugar and oil together until smooth. Whisk in the eggs, honey, and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Gently stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture until just combined.
  3. Core the apples and mince them in a food processor. Fold the apples into the batter. Pour into the prepared bundt pan 3/4 of the way up the side of the pan. Don’t overfill! It’ll be a mess and it won’t bake through. Bake for 50 minutes, let stand for 10 minutes, and invert onto a place.
  4. For the glaze, melt butter in saucepan. Add powdered sugar and vanilla – it will be thick and sticky. Stir in maple syrup. Add water until desired consistency is reached.
