Fresh Apple Cake

With Brown Sugar Glaze
So I mentioned previously that I came across this web site called Cake Slice Bakers from one of my favorite blogs to visit Lick the Bowl Good. After seeing several of the cakes… I went out and bought the cookbook they are currently cooking from, Southern Cakes.  It is well written with a little history from each of the recipes. This is the recipe posted for the month of September and since it got such rave reviews, I really wanted to try it!
Fresh Apple Cake
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking sodaa
1 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups finely chopped apples
1 cup chopped walnuts
Brown Sugar Glaze
1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
Heat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 cake pan (I floured mine too). In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt, and wisk everything together.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs with a wooden spoon until pale yellow and foamy. Add the oil and vanilla, and beat well. Stir in flour mixture with wooden spoon and continue stirring just until the flour disappears. Add the apples and nuts, and scrape the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 45 - 50 minutes until cake is golden brown and springs back when lightly touched. Place cake on a wire rack.
Make the glaze while the cake is hot. Combine all the ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until mixture comes to a gentle boil, and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
Spoon the glaze over the hot cake and let cake cool completely.
