More apple posts, Diane? Yes. There will always be more apple posts. This apple walnut spice cake is a great recipe to have up your sleeve. It makes up quick, uses ingredients you probably already have lying around, and is one of the more delicious things I have tasted this fall (up there with this apple crisp, which happens to be the most popular post on the blog!)
It’s dense, moist, and so, so flavorful. There’s the tang of the apples, the crunch of the walnuts, and the gorgeous compliment the fall spices add to the mix. And that spiced glaze? Literally the icing on the cake.
Yes, you want this. Dustin and I ate the whole thing in two days, which is definitely not something I’d recommend from a health standpoint, but I dare any of you to have more self control around this baby.
Here’s a video to show you how to make apple walnut spice cake (for the written instructions, just keep scrolling!).
Just one more note before the recipe: The first time I made this, I thought I burned the top. Apple cake gets dark, guys. Like, way, way deep brown dark. If you take the cake out when the toothpick comes clean, you’ll be all right, no matter how brown the top gets.
So without further ado:
Apple Walnut Spice Cake
Tangy apples, crunchy walnuts, and a sweet cinnamon glaze!
Spread batter in greased 9x13 baking pan and bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Mix together all ingredients for the glaze, adding the water 1 Tbsp at a time until you get the consistency you want.
Drizzle glaze over cake. Enjoy!
This recipe will make 8 mini-bundts. To make the mini-bundts, grease and flour your pan, then fill it with batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 325° or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
