Cake Ingredients:

-3 large eggs

-3/4 cup Queen Farina honey

-1/2 cup white sugar

-1/4 cup light brown sugar

-1 1/4 cup canola oil

-1 1/2 tsp vanilla

-3 cups all purpose baking flour

-1 tsp baking powder

-1 tsp baking soda

Total Time: 2 Hours

Servings: 10

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. 

 

Mix the eggs together in a large bowl, then slowly add in the vanilla, oil, brown sugar, white sugar, and honey. 

In a separate bowl, pour the flour. Then mix into the flour the cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and spices.  Add the flour mixture into the first bowl with the liquids and stir well until everything has been evenly blended. Then mix in the shredded apples. 

 

Pour the mixed batter evenly into a sprayed bundt pan. (Do not fill pan more than 3/4 full). Place cake in oven for 74-90 minutes. It’s finished cooking when the edges of the cake pull away from the pan and darken. If you’re unsure, insert a toothpick into center, if it comes out clean it’s done. 

 

Let cake cool for 10 minutes in the bunt pan, then flip it onto a flat plate to finish cooling. Then sprinkle 3 tbsp of powdered sugar evenly on top of the cake. 

And enjoy!
