Apple Cake - a Perfect Fall dessert



Apple Cake:  A Perfect Fall Dessert

3 cups of diced apples (peeled - I used Empire, about 3 large)
1 cup of lightly toasted walnuts (or pecans)
2 teaspoons of vanilla
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
3 eggs
 
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Lightly spray a bundt pan.  I used a new silcone bundt pan and it worked great!
Beat sugars, eggs, and oil.  Add vanilla, cinnamon, flour, baking soda, salt.  Batter will be stiff.  Fold in toasted nuts and apples.  Pour and spread in prepared bundt pan.  Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes.  Cool in pan about 10 minutes, place rack on top, flip, and slowly lift cake pan.  Allow cake to cool completely if frosting.  I just sprinkled it with powdered sugar, and served it with whipped cream.  Everyone loved this cake!
