This walnut apple cake recipe is light and airy — loaded with fresh apples that are magically baked to perfection. You can serve this apple dessert recipe as a perfectly delicious snack for the whole gang.
The cake is done when it is golden brown on the top and it springs back when you press it firmly. You can top this cake with a nice scoop of whipped cream. Or, you can add a delicious buttercream frosting. The cake is best eaten within 2 days.
Make sure all the ingredients for the cake are at room temperature. Otherwise, the result won’t be as good. Freshly toasted, chopped pecans or almonds are optional, but would be an excellent addition to the cake recipe. A lemon glaze made of milk, powdered sugar, and lemon juice would be a wonderful topping too.
There are many kinds of apples in the market, but I suggest using one of the following:
Granny Smith Apples Honeycrisp Golden Delicious
You can also add slices of pears, this will add a delicious aroma and sweetness to the cake.
