Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 226g unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 600g sugar (3 cups)
  • 200g light brown sugar (1 cup)
  • 6 eggs
  • 220g buttermilk (1 cup)
  • 150g grapeseed or similar light oil (2/3 cup)

Glaze-Soak

  • 240g apple cider, simmered and reduced to approx 120g (1 cup to 1/2 cup)
  • 20g salted butter (1 1/2 Tbsp)
  • 4g vanilla extract (1 tsp)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 325F and prep the bundt pan by greasing it with butter or oil and then dusting it with flour. You can do these steps just before mixing together the dry and wet ingredients if you prefer.
  • Toast the caraway seeds in a pan for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until they get a little more gold and their aroma is stronger. Be careful not to let them burn and remove immediately from the hot pan.
  • Combine 2/3 the caraway seeds (20g) with the rye berries and mill at the finest setting. If you don’t have a grain mill, you can grind the caraway seeds in a spice grinder and use stone-milled whole grain rye flour.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, including the whole caraway seeds. Set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a microwave on low power or in a saucepan on the stove. You can use the same pan for the cider reduction later. (See Notes below about melting versus creaming the butter.)
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl with a stiff spatula, mix together the melted butter and sugar. Next add the eggs one at a time and beat until smooth. Finally, mix in the buttermilk and oil.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until everything is incorporated. Scrape the bottom of your bowl with a spatula at least once if you’re using a stand mixer.
  • Pour the batter into the bundt pan and bake for 1 hour and 25 minutes, or until a toothpick, chopstick, or dinner knife comes out clean (little cake bits are fine; creamy batter is not).
  • Cover the cake with foil for the last 25 minutes of baking if it seems to be darkening excessively. I didn’t find this necessary.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and if you have small, thin spatula, use it to loosen the edges of the cake from the pan. Flip the pan onto a cooling rack, and after about 15 minutes, gently remove the pan from the cake. If the pan doesn’t come loose, turn it upright again and use the spatula to coax the cake away from the edges of the pan before you flip again.
    • ************* Blogger’s note: I skipped the following **************
  • Let the cake cool on the rack while you prepare the glaze-soak.
  • In a saucepan, simmer the apple cider until it’s reduced by half. Melt the butter into the hot thickened cider and add the vanilla extract.
  • Return the cake to the bundt pan and poke some holes throughout the cake with your toothpick.
  • Pour the glaze-soak over the cake, reserving a small amount to brush on the cake. Let the glaze-soak absorb for about 15 minutes. Flip the bundt onto a serving platter or cake stand and brush the remaining glaze-soak on the cake.
  • Stored covered or wrapped at room temperature for several days. You can freeze tightly wrapped slices for longer storage.

Notes

If you don’t have buttermilk, you can add a teaspoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to regular milk or a milk substitute. 

I made this cake with melted butter and again with room-temp butter that I creamed into the sugars and there was no difference in cake volume-texture. You can do whichever approach you prefer.

Toasting the caraway seeds brings out an almost licorice flavor note. Leaving them untoasted results in a more citrus flavor. Feel free to experiment with all toasted, all untoasted, or a combination of both. 

This rye apple bundt cake is a fitting salute to the end of fall and an excellent finale to a Thanksgiving feast. The toasted caraway and rye wheat impart a lovely warmth to the cake, and the apple cider glaze is not too sweet. Best of all, you probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen.

************************************************************************8

I don’t know if the typical person would have the ingredients in he pantry, but bakers would !

I was recently gifted with some rye flour and had, albeit a bit short, the caraway seeds in the cupboard.

Rye flour and caraways seeds in a bundt cake? Lets go !

mis en place, used organic rye flour

the required toasted caraway seed addition, both ground and whole , ground with motor and pestle

standard bundt pan

mmmm…butter!

typical mixing pictures

finally the dry ingredients, although I had the mis en place the dark brown sugar didn’t get creamed into the butter. It was a later addition.

Into the oven the LG 5813 non convection. It;s new so I have to brag for awhile

.

Cake is now connected to the cloud, see you later , drop me a notification when I have to do something.

Done ! I did cover it with foil towards the end.

The reveal

The submission to the Boss Lady for critique at afternoon espresso break.

Verdict : It’s a keeper ! but it would not unseat the Boss’s Sour Cream Pound cake recipe currently at #1

After sampling this cake for a few days the flavor grows on you. Think a sweet rye bread. and yes, toasted (broiled) with butter is the morning breakfast. BTW I skipped the glaze but had some boiled apple cider to drizzle on some. If you are looking for a something different cake, here it is.

shopping/prices

While the current economic conditions have changed and we have inflated prices to deal with of certain commodities, shopping defensibly for bargains that can be found is possible. Smart shoppers always have this in mind no matter what the economic conditions. Shop store brands, skip highly priced items till sales and consider delivery for time and energy savings now that transportation can be expensive. Delivery services will typically add a delivery fee and a service fee but some stores will vary the delivery cost to less expensive time slots later in the day. Shopping early and scheduling a delivery later in the evening can save a few dollars. Some have a loyalty program accumulating points etc. Some delivery shopping services will give promotions like free delivery or dollar amounts off your next order.

Here are some recent prices including the local store which now has it”s own delivery service. In the past I have used Instacart for this market but Instacart will add a markup usually about 10% to each item . The store also honors the sale prices in it’s flyer for delivery. We still use instacart and online order delivery services for non perishable items delivered within 2 days. Even deals are found on eBay etc for bulk items like toilet paper from institutional supplies.

Using a ride service, incorporate a drop off from an appointment for instance, to the local market within the return route on the way home. It may only add a few more dollars (most people are now valuing cost to the price of a gallon of gasoline) to the total return trip.

Prices are generally more expensive across the board for groceries but bargains can be found.

The free delivery was a promotion, yes there is usually a mark up in prices from the actual store prices. Some items that are on sale may actually be lower than store prices.

If you are an extremely picky shopper you may not like having grocery delivery. There are options to select alternatives if an item is out of stock /not available. You can modify your list till the shopper starts. Your shopper can communicate by texting to ask for an approval of a change also. You rely on an experienced shopper to make the best choices. The system is not perfect in every way as with shopping on line or even going to the market and finding out there all out of a certain item. Real time quantities would require a system that requires shoppers to scan their purchases as they pick them like in an fully automated store (Amazon) and relay that info in real time to have that item replenished if the supply chain can support it, or have a picker in the store pick and store your order before the shopper arrives. In our area, Instacart has expanded to a decent variety of stores not only groceries. Prepackaging of items also is easier to select than a by weight items.

In my opinion, one tends to organize shopping more carefully as to the frequency of going to the store multiple times for a few items , This would also tie in to meal planning. Instacart does offer subscription services that lower delivery cost but it not required. Instacart is also available through a web connected computer (desktop or other device that can access webpages) so a smartphone device is not required. I’ve used both platforms and sometimes the messaging can have a bit of latency.

Grocery delivery is not new, in past times some specialty neighborhood grocers would offer phone in ordering and a grocery delivering to preferred customers. i don’t know though how the price was negotiated back then.

Expected to blog more during the pandemic, not true, those of us who value a simple limited social contact lifestyle have endured the pandemic with ease. Technology has permitted us to have goods and services delivered, with the need to venture out of our dwellings not necessary. Those who have found the working from a home sanctuary may choose to continue to use the services they adopted during these times such as on line shopping , education and increased social media contacts.

Shopping/delivery

Since most non refrigerated groceries can be shipped (ie Amazon,Wal-Mart or Target etc.) most  retailers offer grocery pick up service, and all of this is done  either through an online website or app or both.

As once though of as a luxury, a personal shopper and delivery is now in the reach of many consumers.  The savvy consumer has done their homework and figured their own labor cost and time, vehicle and travel cost. The price of convenience should be factored in, traveling in inclement weather, safety of travel, parking and carrying groceries.

Not to mention that most restaurants who cater to the stay at home or office employee sign on with one of the many gig tech services , Uber eats, Postmates or Door Dash for delivery service.

Online shopping and delivery, now many years old, is adapted to about any type of retail operation and the next logical step is to apply this to the grocery shopping experience. Persons with no access to personal transportation or unable to operate a vehicle, could compare grocery delivery service option to using public transportation. (Note: some low-cost transportation may be available through your city’s own local bus senior services that provide door to store and return service for person meeting certain requirements and the participant would be subject to the providers schedule).

Persons relying on other than an owned vehicle for mobility, such as walking/biking to the nearest market,  grocers may offer delivery services provided you are within their service radius. One factor that may limit the use of grocery delivery is that some consumers may like to select their groceries in person. As more items are packaged, choices can be graphically represented on-line for ordering. Produce and fruit though,  can be fickle as consumers like to select their own fruit and vegetables relying on their senses as for instance one might select a fruit less ripe depending on the time line of their menu or use.

One popular grocer delivery service is Peapod, in this location, tied to the Stop and Shop retailer/grocer. Trying this service is a no brainer, an email and password register the user to the site or app. You can also browse the site without registration. If you already shop at Stop and Shop, and use the loyalty card, the option to add that card is available to track all your purchases.

It should be noted that the Peapod service (to my knowledge and online research) does not rely on gig tech employees but full-time employees of the retailer . Most groceries delivery services have split the process into 2 operations, the personal shopper and delivery driver. Wether or not one person does both or two separate persons split the transaction is unclear. In locations offering grocery pickup a picker is already in place.

As the competition increases the retail delivery services are doing their best to sign up users to their platform. With Peapod, an up front discount is offered which resulted in 1/2 off of the delivery cost. Most of the prices for items I shopped for are inline or slightly above what is at the store itself. Stop and Shop may be considered higher priced by some standards but from what I assume is that it may have a higher percentage of union full-time employees that provide many employee benefits, but that discussion is beyond the scope of this article.

For now, I wanted to purchase  mostly refrigerated items like meat and fish etc.

After submitting the Peapod order, I received the usual expected email confirmation. Navigating the online site is no different that other online shopping sites. The discount can be gained by utilizing discounted delivery time windows available shown when the order is placed.  No problem if one of your family members is home during that time slot. They do promise notification before 30 minutes either by text or email but no a big factor if someone is already at the residence. There is an option for unattended delivery, but I believe a storage container is required and with the safety of food temperatures involved, person to person delivery is preferred . An email lets you know the order is on the way with confirmed items and final total as this will vary from the original order as stated by the website. I suppose there is some thought as with the delivery of the items some consumers would reject some items  on inspection and have the order modified but I didn’t have the cause to reject anything as all was in order. This is paramount to the online shopping and delivery process. GETTING THE ORDER CORRECT! No problemo

I did research tipping for this service from other online sources, as I don’t think is was plainly stated on the Peapod website wondering if the drivers are able to accept a cash or electronic payment transaction for a tip.

One thing I noticed is that a written signature (pen on paper) is required at the time of delivery as for one, the final price of the order may be different from original order as stated on the paper printed receipt that delivery person brings with the order , and two, it allows one to add a gratuity  by writing, a smart device is not required at delivery, as I have gotten accustomed to receiving an email or notification that the delivery (or in the case of a ride hailing service) that I have completed the transaction and the option of adding the tip electronically is available after  the service/delivery is complete. It also should be noted that a smart mobile device or app IS NOT required to place an order. I don’t know if an order can be initiated by voice phone call.

The Peapod delivery person is more than happy to enter your residence to carry the groceries, that may or may  not be an advantage to the consumer. I was happy to assist the person and carry in several bags. The delivery person is attentive to the quality of the delivered items verifying that, for instance, a carton of eggs was complete and not damaged. (the grocery items were delivered in the plastic type bags that you would bring home from the store.)

So what’s the bottom line ?

As with other services there are many options to consider whether a service will fit your budget and lifestyle. Budget conscience persons will factor in all the variables. More retailers have bridged technology with the brick and motar shopping experience  to customers who expect different levels of services.
