Ingredients

Honey Glaze: 

1 cup confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons milk

Apple Cake:

3 cups diced Granny Smith apples, about 2 apples

1 cup lightly toasted 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

  1. Glaze: Add all the ingredients to a small bowl and stir until smooth. Set the bowl aside. 
  2. Cake: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a Bundt pan or tube pan. 
  3. In a bowl, mix together the apples, walnuts, vanilla, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. 
  4. 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. 
  5. 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. 
  6. 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!
