Apple Cinnamon Cake with Maple and Walnut Glaze

5.0
1 rating
This is a simple, moist cake with great spices and a moderate level of sweetness. I've added loads of apples so that every bite has a little bit of the tart crunch from an apple mixed with the moist, spicy undertones from the cake. This is a great recipe for a potluck or Sunday dinner in the fall.
