Fall is one of my favorite seasons for so many reasons! But being able to bake recipes with apples is definitely in my top FIVE! And since I live a short distance a way from the Apple Capital of Minnesota, I have plenty of delicious apples to choose from! There is nothing that says fall more to me than the smell of apples and cinnamon throughout our kitchen! You'll definitely get that when you bake this Apple Cake, but you'll get so much more! Like one of the moistest cakes EVER, topped with a sweet buttery glaze and crunchy nuts!

This cake is one of my favorite apple desserts and it's SUPER easy to make too!
