  • Summary

    Instead of a traditional apple pie, opt for this spiced apple cake for Thanksgiving. Grated apples in the filling give it a moist, dense texture, while the caramel glaze and pretty caramelized walnuts make it truly show-stopping.

    • 1 cup raw walnuts
    • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder

    • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
