Apple Cake

Apple Cake

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups butter or canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (more if your family enjoys it)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups sliced peeled apples (Granny Smith are our favorites)
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
(NOTE: If you don't enjoy baking from scratch, try using your favorite yellow cake mix with 1 1/2 cups of butter/oil and no water)
  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and butter. 
  2. In separate bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients and briefly mix with whisk or fingers. Then add to wet ingredients (batter will be very thick). Fold in apples and nuts.
  3. Pour into a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan (bundt pan). Bake at 325° for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  4. For a glazed appearance, melt a little butter on the top of the cake to make it shiny.
  5. If desired, drizzle a honey glaze or powdered sugar glaze for more sweetness.
Honey Glaze
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup powdered sugar 
2 tablespoons water or milk (add gradually to mixture)
Drizzle atop cake
