Full Answer

  1. Prepare the ingredients

    To make an apple cake, chop two large Granny Smith apples and 1 cup of toasted walnuts or pecans. Also measure out 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon, vanilla extract, baking soda and salt, 2 cups of sugar, 1.25 cups of vegetable oil and three eggs. If you would like to top your cake with a glaze, also gather 1 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk.

  2. Mix together dry and wet ingredients

    First, combine the apples with the walnuts or pecans, vanilla and cinnamon. Also combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a different bowl. In a third bowl, stir together the oil, sugar and eggs. Add in the flour mixture to the oil mixture and combine this with the apples. Pour the batter into a greased Bundt pan. If you do not have a Bundt pan, this cake can be baked in any regular baking dish.

  3. Bake the cake

    Bake the cake for 1 hour and 30 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. The cake is finished baking when a toothpick inserted into the thickest part of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool before serving.

  4. Make the glaze

    If you would like to glaze the cake, stir together the powdered sugar and milk until a thin paste is formed. If necessary, add more milk. Pour the glaze over the cooled cake, and serve.
