It must be fall- apples everywhere

I'm getting my fill of fresh Georgian Bay apples- yummy!! apples & cheese - apple butter - apple crisp

Courtesy of Kristen- here's her recipe for Apple Harvest "Bundt" Cake
 

Apple Harvest Cake
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 12 cup bundt pan.
1 1/4 cup unbleached flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
2 cups peeled and finely chopped apples
       (I used 2 large apples - one Red Delicious and one Honey Crisp)
1 cup nuts - walnuts taste best with apples.
In a large bowl, measure all dry ingredients and mix. Add remaining ingredients except apples and nuts. Beat for three minutes at medium speed. Mixture will be thick. By hand, stir in apples and nuts.
Bake in a 12 cup bundt pan at 325 degrees for 55 to 65 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.  The cake will be moist. Cool in pan for 15 minutes. Turn out and cool completely.
Top with the following glaze if you like things sweet:
Mix together:
1/2 cup powdered sugar - run through a sieve so it doesn't have lumps like mine did!
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 - 3 teaspoons milk. 
Drizzle over the cooled cake.
My cake had a bit of problems - I forgot to flour the pan after spraying it - so I would suggest a good coating of shortening or butter and some flour. Maybe it is time to retire my 30 year old bundt pan and look for one of those swanky silicone versions. Anyone have any experience with those? The glaze can be omitted.
