apple bundt cake with cream cheese frosting..

so we are participating in this wonderful co-op.. called Bountiful Baskets.. we don't know what fruits and veggies we will get.. so last week we ended up with tons of carrots, apples and lemons.. thus my choices of what i was going to make for easter this year.. first thing i made was an apple bundt cake using janet's sun flower bundt cake pan.. unfortunately the bottom/top stuck and well it didn't last that afternoon.. so the next day i made it again in a regular bundt cake pan and it stuck slightly.. so it might not be the best cake for a bundt cake pan..  the recipe was inspired here and also here.. but like most of my recipes i couldn't follow either one so i basically took the parts and ingredients i liked from each and made my own..
