Why I Love This Recipe

This Apple Cake is the perfect Fall dessert, with its chunks of apples and nuts wrapped in a cinnamon-laced batter. It is delicious with a dollop of softly whipped cream, a small scoop of vanilla ice cream, or with a little heavy cream poured over the top.


Ingredients You'll Need

Apple Cake:
3/4 cup (75 grams) walnuts or pecans

1 pound (450 grams) apples (about 2 - 3 large apples)

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 1/2 cup (195 grams) all purpose flour

3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated white sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons (6 grams) baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon (1 gram) salt

2 large eggs (100 grams), at room temperature

6 tablespoons (85 grams) butter, melted and cooled to room temperature

1 teaspoon (4 grams) vanilla extract

4 tablespoons (40 grams) milk, at room temperature

Glaze:

2 tablespoons (28 grams) butter

2 tablespoons (25 grams) granulated white sugar

2 tablespoons (25 grams) light brown sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons lemon, orange, or apple juice


Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Butter, or spray with a non stick cooking spray, a 9 inch (23 cm) round springform pan and then line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. Place the springform pan on a larger baking sheet.

Place the nuts on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly brown and fragrant. Remove from the oven, let cool, and then coarsely chop.

Peel, core, and chop the apples into bite-sized pieces. Toss with the lemon juice.

In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, and then stir in the melted butter, vanilla extract, and milk. Stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture until fully incorporated. Fold in the chopped nuts and apple chunks.

Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake in preheated oven for about 35 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.

While the cake is still warm, prepare the glaze. Place the butter, sugars, and lemon (or apple) juice in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil gently for about one minute. Remove from heat and, using a pastry brush, brush the warm glaze on the top of the apple cake.

Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
