    6 hrs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon; set aside. Grease and flour an 8 inch Bundt pan.
  2. Whisk together eggs, oil, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract until smooth. Mix in sifted dry ingredients until moistened, then fold in sliced apples, pecans, and walnuts. Pour batter into prepared Bundt pan.
  3. Bake cake in preheated oven until golden brown on top, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours. Stir together brown sugar, milk, butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a saucepan. Simmer for 2 minutes, then pour over cake in the Bundt pan as soon as it comes out of the oven. Allow cake to cool in pan set over a wire rack until it is room temperature, about 4 hours.
  4. Whisk together mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Unmold cake and place onto a serving plate, spread icing over the top.

Cake very moist. I found it excessively sweet with the two cups of sugar. I will make it again adjusting the quantity of sugar probably by half.

Very moist and sweet. My husband and I enjoyed it, but were a bit surprised by the cake consistency...ours turned out almost like what you'd expect from pecan pie. Don't forget to add the sugar in with the other ingredients!

I wasnt very happy with this recipe. I was so excited to make it because how great it looked and the reviews were positive. I found it having a bland taste, it was very gritty/crumbly. the topping was great though. it added flaver to the top of the cake when it sunk in. The icing didnt really wow me. I tasted a bit of it once creamed together, I felt the need to add a bit of milk to it. Then I heated it for about 45 seconds in the microwave. But my husband and I only ate one piece each. I was going to recommend this to my sister but not now.

My co-worker brought this cake in to work, it was so good I asked for the recipe. It's heavenly! She did say she'd cut the sugar down next time (it is very rich and can cover the apple flavor), but the mixture that you pour in to the cake is so delicious and gives the cake this melted coffee-cake topping crunchiness on the edges. Also, she added milk to the icing, since the mayo and vanilla aren't enough to make the glaze.

So Yummy! I always take copies of this recipe when I take this cake somewhere. (I just don't let anyone see the nutrition info!)
