Harvest Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze

image

Wow! This cake was so good. I’m crazy about pound cakes, so this one will definitely be made again. I just happened to have some apples on hand along with the other ingredients. It seems like I always have enough stuff for a cake but when it comes to fixing dinner, I don’t! OOPS! (Gotta work on that!)

2 Cups sugar
1 1/2 Cups vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
3 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 Medium apples, peeled and chopped
1 Cup chopped walnuts

Caramel Glaze
1/2 Cup butter
1/2 Cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons milk

Heat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 12inch tube pan.
In large bowl beat oil, sugar, eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in flour, salt and baking soda until smooth. Stir in apples and nuts.
Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
In 2 quart saucepan, heat all ingredients to boiling, stirring occasionally. Boil 2 minutes stirring constantly, remove from heat and pour over warm cake.
Yum!
