Apple Cake with Honey Glaze

My mom recommended I try this recipe and it was delicious!

Apple Cake with Honey Glaze
adapted from Paula Deen

3 cups diced, peeled apples
1 cup lightly toasted chopped walnuts (optional)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups coconut oil, melted
3 eggs

Honey glaze:
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon milk

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a Bundt pan or tube pan.

In a bowl, mix together the apples, walnuts, vanilla, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Using an electric mixer beat the sugar, oil, and eggs in a large bowl. Add in the dry ingredients and beat until completely combined. Fold in the apple mixture.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 60 - 75 minutes or until a tester inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Allow the cake to fully cool in the pan, about 1 hour, and then turn it out onto a plate. Meanwhile, whisk together glaze ingredients until smooth.

Drizzle the apple cake with some of the honey glaze, serve and enjoy. Wrap tightly and store in the refrigerator.
