Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 45 mins
Total: 55 mins



  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup grated apple about 1 large apple



  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Generously grease and flour a bundt pan. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat together all wet ingredients except for the apple.
  • Beat in the dry ingredients, making sure to spoon and level the flour, don't scoop right from the bag.
  • Once well combined, fold in the grated apple until well combined.
  • Transfer to your prepared pan and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes (I usually do 48) or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let cool in the pan for just 15 minutes, then flip onto a cake stand, tapping the bottom lightly as needed to help it slide out more easily.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Whisk together all ingredients for the glaze, then pour on top. Slice and enjoy!


I made this into 1 regular bundt cake, but you can also use two 8 or 9 inch round cake pans instead. Decrease the bake time by about 10 minutes, but keep an eye on it and check for doneness around 35 minutes.
