Ingredients

  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 cups (about 2 apples) diced Granny Smith apples
  • 1 cup lightly toasted and chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs

Directions

Glaze: Add confectioner’s sugar, honey and milk to a small bowl and stir until smooth. Set the bowl aside.

Cake: Preheat the oven to 325 °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!

Cook’s Note:

The cake can be wrapped tightly and stored in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.
