This is a delicious apple cake with a moist crumb inside and a sweet crispy outer crust. Perfect for using all those crisp fresh apples!
The maple glaze icing is the perfect topping for this cake...or if you prefer....a dusting of confectioners sugar works fine too!!
Enjoy my little taste of fall :)
Grease a 12 cup bunt pan ( can use 9x13 as well)
Cool for 45 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar or use my Maple Glaze icing over the top
You want to have a good thick icing so most of the frosting won't end up in the center of the bundt cake or run off your cake platter...adjust with more confec sugar or a dab more cream...when you finished icing the cake immediately top the icing with the fine chopped nuts and let set.
