Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

This was so good that this was the only piece left for a picture! A teeny lonesome square.
(It was taken care of shortly after the picture though)
I have made this twice in the last 3 weeks.  Need I say more?
It’s similar to my Irish Apple Cake, just a little sweeter with the glaze.
I also doubled the recipe when we had alot of company with great results.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 c cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups finely chopped apples (I like granny smith for baking)
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped (optional)
Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Whisk together to combine well.
In a large bowl, mix the eggs with a hand mixer until light in color and foamy.
Add oil and vanilla, mix well.
 Stir in the flour mixture with a spoon until well mixed.
Stir in the apples and nuts (if using).
Spread batter in a greased 8 inch round or square pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
While hot, prepare glaze.
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3 T butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 T heavy cream
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan.  Cook over med heat, stirring often, until mixture comes to a gentle boil.  Cook for 3-5 minutes.  Spoon over the hot cake.  Let cake cool completely before serving.

  1. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
    experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
