Breakfast Bundt Cake with Apple and Peanut

Peanut Butter and Apple Breakfast Bundt Cake

If you’re looking for an exciting breakfast recipe idea, you’ve landed in the right place.  Breakfast is such an important meal, yet so often it’s overlooked.  I’m guilty of thinking things like, “I’ll make up for a lack of nutrition later in the day.”

One of my goals in the new year is to be more creative and find new ways to add nutritious ingredients to the breakfast meal.

Breakfast Bundt Cake with Apple and Peanut

A few months ago, I decided to always keep a bag of whole wheat flour in the pantry so that I could try to add it into all of my baking attempts.  It’s really inspired me to experiment with making more of my recipes whole-grain based, which is great for adding fiber.

In this simple breakfast cake, I’ve incorporated whole wheat flour, unsweetened applesauce, and a fascinating new peanut powder from Jif.  Jif Peanut Powder has the same protein as peanut butter, yet has 85% less fat.  So you can add roasted peanut flavor and protein with less calories; plus, unlike some competitors, it has no added salt or sugar.

I picked up my Jif Peanut Powder in the peanut butter aisle at Walmart.

It’s a very fine powder that’s excellent for both baking and for adding to smoothies.

Tips for Making Breakfast Bundt Cake

  • This is a really forgiving recipe when it comes to what type of fruit puree you use.  You can use banana, apple, or even a sweet squash like butternut or acorn.  It will still work great.
  • You can make the breakfast bundt cake entirely with whole wheat flour, but it will be more dense and have a slightly rough texture.  That’s why I make it with a mixture of all purpose and whole wheat flour, so that it will be light and fluffy when baked, yet retain the nutrition of the whole wheat.
  • This breakfast bundt cake stores very well when wrapped.  In fact, it tastes even better the next day.  Make it ahead and have a slice for breakfast each day.

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 11/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup peanut powder
  • 11/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum optional
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350, and prepare a 9 1/2 inch Bundt pan (also called a 10 cupBundt pan) by spraying it with Baker's Joy. (Or butter and flour the pan. Your choice.)
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the flours, Jif Peanut powder, baking powder & soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the applesauce with the rum (if used) and stir to combine.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar, then mix until well combined. Add the eggs and sour cream and mix well.
  5. Add the dry mix and the applesauce to the large mixing bowl. Mix until the batter is just combined. Scrape into the prepared Bundt pan and place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes, then loosen the cake around the edges, turn out from pan, and set upright on the rack to finish cooling.
  7. Enjoy when cool. Wrap airtight to store.
