Delicious and moist, this cake is filled with apples, cinnamon and nuts! It's a great addition to any brunch, or just enjoy with a cup of coffee on Saturday morning!

Ingredients

For the Cake:

  • 3 cups diced apples
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon milk

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mix together the apples, walnuts, vanilla, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  2. 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.
  3. Scrape the batter into a lightly greased Bundt pan or tube pan.Bake in a 325 degree F oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a tester inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean (for dark pans it may be a little shorter).
  4. Allow the cake to fully cool in the pan, about 1 hour, and then turn it out onto a plate.
  5. For the glaze, add all the ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cake.
  6. Store covered cake in refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  7. Drizzle the apple cake with some of the honey glaze, serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • What kind of apples should you use for baking? Granny Smith are far and away my favorite apples for baking! If you don't have any and can't get them, choose the next tartest option for best flavor, such as Pink Lady.
  • What kind of pan do you need to make this? A standard bundt pan (holds 12 cups of batter) or tube pan is preferred.
  • How can I tell when the cake is ready? Use a long cake tester, inserted into the cake. If it comes out clean, your cake is ready to come out of the oven. This could take anywhere from 80 to 100 minutes, depending on your oven, environment and the color of your cake pan.
  • How should you store this apple cake? Keep it covered in the fridge--a cake plate with a cover works great to store the cake. It will keep well for up to 3 days. I love the way it tastes cold from the fridge!
