Glazed Cinnamon Apple Cake

This looked to yummy not to make plus I got to use my new kitchen gadget :) The original recipe called for nuts but I was baking this to take to a party so I left the nuts out and added a yummy glaze. This was the only piece that made it back with me to take a picture.

Cinnamon Apple Cake

4 cups chopped apples (about 4-6 apples)
1-1/4 cups sugar
2 cups flour
3 large eggs
3/4 cups oil
1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
3-4 tablespoons water

Preheat oven to 350*F. Mix sugar, oil, vanilla in a large bowl. Sift in flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. My mix seemed really thick so I added in about 3-4 tablespoons of water to thin it out a little to get it to kind of a dipping consistency. Take a moment to taste the mix by dipping a piece of apple in it. Then mix about 3 cups of the apples into the mix. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle the rest of the apples on top and gently press into the mix. Bake for about 40 minutes. Check done-ness with a toothpick.

While the cake is cooling make the glaze. Mix in just enough milk to achieve drizzling consistency. For me it took about 3 tablespoons.

1-1/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

After the cake has cooled just a little bit, pour the glaze on top and enjoy. I spooned the glaze into a ziplock bag and cut off a corner to be able to drizzle it nicely. Or you could leave off the glaze and serve with vanilla ice cream :)

Nice- the glaze sounds like a great addition. I never think to do add something like that.
