Fresh Apple Black Walnut Cake

It’s that time of year again. Fall is in the air and it is apple season. I had a call from my daughter who was coming home this weekend requesting an apple cake, if I had time to bake it. Of course, I obliged. Fresh apple with black walnut pound cake is a family favorite. We even eat it for breakfast! This is a heavy batter and you will need a heavy duty mixer. (My personal preference is my Kitchen Aid. I consider it a must-have for anyone who bakes.)

Next stir in

3 cups diced apples

1 cup black walnuts

Stir well and pour into a greased tube or bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 20 minutes.

I hope that you try this recipe and love it as much as my family does.
