Apple Walnut Cake with Maple Drizzle

Scripture to Live By:
For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
Isaiah 54:10

Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
Genesis 28:15

Recipe Post:
Each year when the apple harvest is ready to pick, my husband and I go apple picking.  We went and picked some apples the other day and I started looking for new recipes.  I found an a Apple Walnut Cake Recipe at Home Cooking  It sounded really good.  I like almost anything with walnuts and raisins and it had both.  I have adapted it to our taste. My husband really liked it.  I was going to take it to a ladies meeting but after he sampled it, he wanted me to make something else for the ladies meeting.  It is more like a coffee cake.
Printable Recipe

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

3 cups peeled and chopped cooking apples

Maple Topping

In a mixing bowl blend white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla. Beat on low speed until blended thoroughly. 

Add the flour mixture one cup at a time to the sugar mixture.  The batter will be thick.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 - 45 minutes or until golden brown.  

Remove the cake from oven and cool slightly then drizzle the maple topping as seen below.  (I put the maple topping in a pastry bag and used a number three tip to put the drizzle on cake.)

Serve while warm or cooled.

Store left overs in the refrigerator to preserve longer.
