Apple Cake

  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • cups white sugar
  • 3 cups Granny Smith apples, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ tsp salt

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F and grease a bundt pan.

  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon then set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the unsalted butter and the sugar, gradually adding in your eggs one at a time while mixing.

  8. In a small mixing bowl, whisk the powdered sugar with the milk until it reaches a creamy glaze consistency.

  9. Then sprinkle the glaze on top of your apple cake before serving.
