  • 3 cups diced Granny Smith apples about 2 apples
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a Bundt pan or tube pan.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the apples, walnuts, vanilla and cinnamon, set aside.
  • In another bowl, whisk or sift together the flour, baking soda and salt, set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer or a handheld mixer, beat the sugar, oil and eggs in a large bowl.
  • Gradually add in the dry ingredients, mixing well after each addition.
  • Using a wooden spoon, fold in the apple mixture.
  • Pour the batter (it will be thick) into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to fully cool in the pan, about 1 hour, and then turn it out onto a plate.
  • While the cake is cooling, prepare the glaze: Add confectioner’s sugar, honey and milk to a small bowl and stir until smooth.
  • Drizzle the cooled cake with the honey glaze, sprinkle the ¼ cup chopped walnuts on top of the cake, and then allow the glaze to set a few minutes before serving.
  • Store the cake in a covered container or wrapped tightly and place in refrigerator. Can be stored for 3 to 5 days for best freshness.
