This is a WOW! Once you try it you will never go back to another apple cake recipe. Try adding a handful of chopped cranberries or even blueberries to add a little variety. You could also replace the walnuts with almonds or pecans.
Prepare your pan by greasing the bottom and sides with a layer of shortening or spray such as Pam. Dust the pan with flour and tap out the excess. In your mixing bowl blend the oil, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Add the eggs one at a time beating after each addition until mixed well. Stir the dry ingredients together and add to the oil and sugar mixture, blend well. Add the apples, nuts and extracts and mix by hand. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 75 minutes or until a toothpick pushed into the center of the cake comes out clean. *Note ( I turned my oven down for the final 15 minutes to 300 degrees )
Cool the cake for 20 minutes before removing it from the pan.
While the cake is cooling, make the glaze. In a small saucepan combine the butter, cream, extract and sugars. Bring that to a boil for one minute, stirring constantly. Cool it a little bit and brush or spoon it onto the cake. Save the extra for serving.
Finish the apple cake with a dusting of powdered sugar and prepare to be blown away.
This incredible fresh apple cake recipe is a winner!
