Uncle Bob's Fresh Apple Cake

Do you have a favorite apple? I love the Honeycrisp variety and the classic Golden Delicious apples.  But when it comes to baking, the Granny Smith is the one I lean towards.  Crisp, tart, and holds together wonderfully in a pie or in a cake, like this fresh apple cake.


I have a confession – I love watching Paula Deen cook, it’s entertaining.  I rarely make her recipes as most of the classics are just way too high in all things not-good-for-you. Her newer recipes are lighter and healthier so I’m going to give them a go.  That being said, this cake is utterly, sinfully delicious.  Calories don’t even exist when you bite into this cake that is loaded with fresh baked apples, cinnamon, and walnuts – and a sweet glaze drizzled over it all.  Have a slice for breakfast, snack, dessert, or even a meal (I won’t tell.)
