Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups canola oil
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large apples

Brown Sugar Glaze

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup Milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Finely chop the apples. You should have enough to equal about 2 cups. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer, or in a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer, combine eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla. Beat 2 minutes.
  • In two batches, add the flour mixture to the egg/oil mixture beating well and scraping sides of the bowl between additions.
  • With mixer on lowest speed, fold in the apples. Batter will be stiff but pourable
  • Fold batter into prepared bundt pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
  • Cool 10 minutes in pan. Put out onto cooling rack. Cool completely.
  • While cake is cooling, prepare the glaze.
  • Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a sauce pan. Add ½ cup brown sugar and whisk until mixed.
  • Slowly drizzle in 1/3 cup milk while still whisking. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 4 – 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool. The glaze will thicken as it cools.
  • Place cake (still on the cooling rack) on a large cookie sheet.
  • Pour the glaze over the cake and let harden a bit before serving.

Notes

I use Baker's Joy to prepare my baking pans. 
A dusting of powdered sugar can be substituted for the brown sugar glaze.
