Apple-Cinnamon Bundt Cake

Yup, another apple recipe. In my mind, when I make dessert with fruit as an ingredient, it makes the dessert healthy ... right? I use apples a lot because I love using this:

My all-in-one apple peeler, slicer and corer.
I love it!

(also works great for potatoes and anything else I need sliced and peeled...)

2 1/2 c flour
1 T cinnamon
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 1/4 c brown sugar
1 c butter, melted
4 eggs, room temperature
6 apples - peeled, sliced, cored (you may borrow my little tool if you like...)

Mix together all the dry ingredients.
Add the apple slices to the dry ingredients and toss.
Melt the butter. Whip the eggs and add about 1/3 of the melted butter to the eggs and mix. Then add the rest of the butter to the eggs.
Add the egg/butter mix to the dry ingredients + apple.
The end result will not be a wet cake batter.

Here's a picture of my batter.
Hopefully you can tell there is still a lot of dry flour...

Spoon the mix into a well-greased bundt pan.
Bake at 350 for 60 minutes.
Cool for 15 minutes and carefully flip the pan for the cake to drop out.

Optional Glaze:
1 c water
2 T water (really, that's all you will need.)

Drizzle the glaze atop the cake before serving.
