harvest pound cake.

somehow, i turned this:

into this:

using this:

harvest pound cake
serves 16

for the cake:
2 cups granulated sugar
1 ½ cups vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 medium apples, peeled and finely chopped (2 cups)
1 cup chopped nuts

for the caramel glaze:
½ cup butter
½ cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons milk

heat oven to 350° f. grease and flour 12-cup fluted tube cake pan. in large bowl, beat granulated sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in flour, salt and baking soda until smooth. stir in apples and nuts. pour into pan. bake 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. cool 20 minutes. remove from pan to cooling rack. in 2-quart saucepan, heat all glaze ingredients to boiling, stirring occasionally. boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly; remove from heat. spoon glaze over warm cake.

which ended up looking kind of like this:

it's magic, i tell ya. sweet, delicious magic.

ps. i would sort of recommend maybe kinda using some sort of spice. it was very delicious, but kinda lacked something. i'm not sure what, so just experiment. also, if you don't want to make your own glaze, you can just buy caramel topping. warm it up and pour it over the cake.
