• Glazed Apple Cake

    I love this cake! The key is not to overcook and not to let the top get too hard on you. You will notice that I used pecans, not walnuts. When you are in the pecan business, you use PECANS!!  :)



    2 Cups Sugar
    1 1⁄2 Cups Vegetable Oil
    2 Teaspoons Vanilla
    3 Eggs
    3 Cups Flour
    1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
    1⁄2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
    1 Teaspoon Salt
    2 Medium Granny Smith Apples, chopped
    1 Cup Walnuts, chopped
    1⁄2 cup butter
    2 Teaspoons Milk
    1⁄2 Cup Brown Sugar


    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

    1. Grease a 9 inch Bundt pan. I usually use one of the “fancy” ones, but anything will work.

    2. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs until light and fluffy.

    3. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; stir into the batter just until blended.

    4. Fold in the apples and walnuts using a spoon. Pour into the prepared pan.

    5. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the crown or the cake comes out clean.

    6. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes then invert on to a wire rack.

    7. Make the glaze by heating the butter, milk and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.

    8. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar, then remove from the heat.

    9. Drizzle over the warm cake. (Actually, I prefer to slice and serve glaze over each slice.)
