Easy Apple Cake

Ingredients 

1 1/4 c. all purpose flour

1 1/4 c. sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

3/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp nutmeg

2 large granny smith apples, chopped (I left the skins on!)

1 c. chopped walnuts (optional)

1 tsp vanilla


Salted Browned Butter Cinnamon Glaze

2 Tbsp butter

2 c. powdered sugar

2-3 Tbsp milk

1 tsp cinnamon

 

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray. 

 

2. Mix flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt and nutmeg together in a bowl with a whisk. 

 

3.  In a small bowl, whisk together the two eggs. Add to dry ingredients along with the apples, vanilla and walnuts. Mix until well combined. It will look really dry but keep mixing until it comes together. Pour the cake batter into the baking dish and baked for 45 minutes. Cool on wire rack.


4. Once the cake is cool make the glaze. Melt butter in a small saucepan (do not use nonstick, you need the lighter color to see the butter change colors!). Cook the butter on low heat until brown particles form on the bottom of the pan. Immediately take off heat when you see this, it will burn quickly! Pour into mixing bowl. Add powdered sugar and cinnamon. Beat in milk. Add more milk until it's the consistency you want!
