2 cups granulated sugar
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups canola oil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 teaspoon of freshly grated orange zest
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine-grained kosher salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups apples, peeled and finely chopped (about 3 medium apples)
1 cup shredded coconut (I prefer to slightly brown mine in a dry skillet beforehand)
1 cup raisins

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray the bundt pan with baking oil, and set aside.

In a large bowl, with a hand mixer combine the sugar, eggs, oil, orange juice, flour, baking soda, kosher salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract; and mix until combined. With a wooden spoon, fold in apples, coconut, and raisins into batter. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Adding the sauce 
so it absorbs into cake...
Meanwhile, just before the cake is done, begin making the sauce by melting the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar, buttermilk, and baking soda, and bring to boiling point while stirring constantly, and then boil for 1 minute, and remove from heat. With a long skewer, poke holes into the hot cake, and then pour 1/2 the sauce over it - to help the sauce absorb into the cake use a pastry brush until sauce disappears.  Pour the remaining 1/2 of sauce over cake and continue letting it absorb using a pastry brush until sauce is fully incorporated.  Let cake stand in bundt pan for 1 hour, and then remove the cake by flipping it onto a rack to finish cooling. - Enjoy!


Tip: I like to serve this wonderful cake with french vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream.  You can also make this cake using alternate dried fruits, mixed nuts, and so on.
