Glazed Apple Cake

I love apple cake, and this is my go to recipe that I like to use. Enjoy it fresh from the oven, but it is even better the next day!

Apple Cake

Glazed Apple Cake

4-5 peeled, diced apples (I use Granny Smith apples)
2 cups sugar
1 cup chopped pecans, optional

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 cups sifted all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tablespoons apple juice

In a large bowl, mix diced apples, sugar, and nuts. Let stand for one hour, stirring often so that the mixture makes its own juices.

Preheat oven 325 degrees.

Sift flour with other dry ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl.  Set aside.

In a small bowl, beat eggs with a wire whisk.  Then add oil and vanilla with eggs and whisk until mixed well.

Add egg mixture and dry ingredients to apples.  Hand stir cake batter just until combined.

Pour into greased and floured 10 inch tube or fluted pan. Bake 325 degrees for about 1 hour, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Pour glaze on cake as soon as it comes out of oven.

Cool 15 minutes on wire rack.  Loosen edges from pan with knife and turn out onto rack.  

When completely cooled, transfer to cake plate with glazed side on top.

I hope you are enjoying some delightful fall weather!  As always, thank you for visiting!Signature

It looks delicious. Cakes often do taste better a day after they are made, a detail I find very encouraging in this busy world.

Happy Monday!

Dear Lady - thank you so much for your kind thoughts through the recent storm. We are well and back to normal and praising the Lord for His mercies to our town - virtually untouched even though we were a direct hit with the eye passing over us and only 40 minutes from the shoreline. Of course, our shore communities are devastated indefinitely - tragic - but looking forward to seeing how the Lord will show Himself mighty through so much loss.

Your apple cake looks delish - but I'm afraid it's too much sugar for me these days . . . :(
Joy!
Kathy
