Apple Cake


I found this recipe on the food network however I had to tweak it a little I didn't care for the glaze I used my own and I used pecans instead of walnuts, I also peeled the apples.

I had to slice the cake for the pictures, the recipe said to oil the pan which I should have added flour, so some of the cake stuck to the pan...lol wasn't pretty for pictures, so I sliced first 

























  • 3 cups diced Granny Smith apples, about 3 apples
  • 1 cup lightly toasted chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups all purpose unbleached flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs

*Honey Glaze:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons milk

My Glaze
  • 2 T butter melted:
  • 1 c powdered sugar
  • ½ t vanilla
  • 3 T warm milk
*Try the honey glaze you may like it...however if not please feel free to give mine a shot*

*Glaze: Add all the ingredients to a small bowl and stir until smooth. Set the bowl aside.

Cake: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a Bundt pan or tube pan.
In a bowl, mix together the apples, walnuts, vanilla, and cinnamon In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Using an electric mixer beat the sugar, oil, and eggs in a large bowl. Add in the dry ingredients and beat until completely combined. Fold in the apple mixture.
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a tester inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Allow the cake to fully cool in the pan, about 1 hour, and then turn it out onto a plate.
Drizzle the apple cake with some of the honey glaze, serve and enjoy! 


Tips:
1. The batter will be very thick more like a cookie dough or bread dough
2. Oil and flour your pan 
2. Cake taste delicious next day warmed





*If you have a dessert recipe that you are having trouble with or afraid to try, please send it to me along with a picture and I will give it a shot….
P.S. I don’t like coconut 


I hope you enjoy
