Apple-Walnut Bundt Cake

I really like Martha Stewart's Living magazine.  This recipe comes from the October 2011 issue.  I couldn't find an online version of the recipe, but I made a few changes to her overly-fussy recipe, so I wouldn't recommend following her exact recipe anyway.

Apple-Walnut Bundt Cake

1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon water
3 tart green apples, cored, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons apple cider

Chris and I each ate one piece when I made it last night and we both loved it.  I could have easily eaten more, therefore I brought the rest into work so my co-workers could help me avoid temptation... although I did have another slice at work today.

The first co-worker I ran into said "oh no, I just joined Weight Watchers this weekend!"  We then decided the apples made it a healthier choice and it would count as a fruit exchange.  Hey, there are 3 apples in the recipe! :)

My newest favorite product is Baker's Joy.  I saw it recommended on America's Test Kitchen and immediately purchased some.  It is a fantastic way to grease and flour a pan all in one slick move.

  1. I've never made a Martha baked good that I haven't loved. And I'm basically a total sucker for apple-y desserts. This looks fantastic!
