Apple Nut Cake

Apple Nut Cake
From: swampbear

1 and 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 and 1/2 cups sugar
1 and 1/2 cups of firmly packed brown sugar (light or dark, whichever does it for ya)
3 large eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg (yes fresh you heathens, none of that stuff in a can)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups peeled and diced cooking apples (about three large tart apples)
1 cup coarsely shopped walnuts (you know how you can buy walnut pieces? well, get some of those and give the larger pieces a few whacks. it'll save time)
Brown Sugar Glaze (recipe to follow)

Beat first three ingredients at medium speed (once again all hail Kitchen Aide!) until blended. Add eggs one at a time beating each egg until well blended.

Combine flour and next three ingredients, stir into sugar mixture. Stir in vanilla. Fold in apples and walnuts.

Pour into a well greased and floured large tube pan thingy or large bundt pan.

Bake at 325 degrees for an hour and a half.

Cool in pan on a wire rack for twenty minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool on wire rack for about fifteen more minutes. Drizzle with warm Brown Sugar Glaze. Eat yourself a big ol' slice and consider hidin' it from everybody else cause it's so good.
