3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
4 cups apples (peeled and chopped)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
For the Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk

Preheat and Prep: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour your Bundt pan generously to ensure your cake comes out perfectly.

Mix the Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk these ingredients together until they're thoroughly mixed.

Blend the Wet Ingredients: In another large bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until they're well combined.

Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Be careful not to overmix.

Add the Apples: Fold in the peeled and chopped apples (and nuts, if you're using them) into the mixture. The batter will be thick, but that's okay.

Bake the Cake: Transfer the batter into your prepared Bundt pan. Smooth out the top with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for about 60-75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Cool the Cake: Let the cake cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, remove it from the pan and let it cool completely on a wire rack.

Prepare the Glaze: While the cake is cooling, make the glaze. Whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle this over the cooled cake.
