Wow, is this ever good! This cake needs at least an hour to rest before serving, it's even better the next day, so plan ahead. I do like the glaze, but the cake is great on it's own as well. I have used pecans instead of walnuts with good results. I also sprinkle some lemon juice on the diced apples so they don't brown. Check the cake at 1 hour, mine is done at 75 minutes. Without the glaze, this cake freezes well. Adapted from Food Network, Paula Deen. She rocks!!
