How to Make Southern Apple Cake with Walnut Glaze


  1. Cake:
    Sift together flour, sugar, soda, cinnamon and salt. Add eggs, oil and apples. Mix well; it will be thick.
  2. Spread evenly in tube pan (ex. bundt or angel food cake pan) spritzed with cooking spray. Bake at 325 for 1 hr and 15 minutes.
  3. Glaze:
    Mix sugar, margarine and milk in saucepan and boil 2 minutes. Add nuts and vanilla. Pour over cake.
  4. Let the cake set in the pan about 5-10 minutes. The minute I take it out of the pan, I pour the glaze over the hot cake and continue spooning it over the cake.
  5. Note: Mini bundt - If you decide to make a mini-bundt, like I did, the baking time can be reduced to about 25 min. Just keep an eye on them!
