Becky Robison



1 1/4 cups canola oil
2 cups sugar
3 eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups peeled and diced assorted apples
1 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

Heat the oven to 325 F. Grease and lightly flour a Bundt pan.
Using an electric mixer, cream the oil and sugar in a large bowl. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Sift in the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Mix until well incorporated. The batter will be on the thick side. Add the apples and pecans to the bowl and mix well.
Pour the batter into the Bundt pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes.
When the cake is almost done, make the glaze.
When the cake is done, leave it in the pan. Poke holes all over the cake with a skewer or toothpick. Pour three-quarters of the glaze on top of the cake while itís in the pan and still hot. The holes will help soak up the glaze.
Let it rest for 30 minutes. Invert the cake onto a cake plate and pour the remaining glaze on top. (If needed, heat the glaze slightly over low heat to bring it to a nice consistency for pouring.)


3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
8 tablespoons butter

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Keep warm.
