Apple and walnut pair so well in a dessert so it was natural for them to be added to this cake to spice up the vanilla gluten-free cake box I had in the kitchen.
While I enjoy Wegman’s brand Gluten Free Vanilla Cake, I found that I wanted to make something a little tastier. So, the Apple and Walnut Bundt Cake was born.
Bundt cakes are lovely because you don’t necessarily need to add icing, which is what we always lack in our home. It’s an option that you can do during the weekday or over the weekend. It’s also a great option to bring to a friend's or family member's home as a surprise or pot luck. Read on to see how easy this cake is to make for you and your family. Happy baking!

1 box Gluten Free Vanilla Cake Mix - Wheat free (by Wegmans)
8 whole walnut pieces
¾ cup Almond Milk

1 cup walnuts (chopped)
4 tbsp of shortening
1 ½ tsp of water
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon ground
Apple and Walnut Bundt Cake Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees as per the packaging.
In the mixer, mix the almond milk, egg, shortening, water, vanilla, cinnamon in the bowl.
Add the gluten free flour vanilla cake mix.
Cut the apple into small cubes and add them to the mix.
Spray the Bundt pan with nonstick spray. Then add the 8 walnut pieces if you want.
Place the batter in the Bundt pan evenly.

Pull out and let cook for a few minutes.
Then, turn upside down on a plate and cool. Add confectioner sugar on top to add sweetness.
