Glazed Cinnamon Apple Bundt Cake

Here is a super easy recipe you can make for breakfast or as a dessert.  My recipe it below but essentially I took this cinnamon roll cake recipe, added apples to it, and baked it in a bundt pan.  My brother-in-law went apple picking yesterday and brought a bunch of apples over so I had been looking for something to make with them.  My husband suggested an apple cake and that's where I came up with this recipe.

Ingredients -

-1 box of yellow cake mix + the ingredients it calls for {mine called for 3 eggs, 1 cup of water, and 1/2 c. oil}
-1 cup of light brown sugar
-4 T of cinnamon
-3 large apples - peeled and chopped
-2 cups confectioners sugar
-warm water

Directions -

-Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Grease your pan.
-Mix up your cake batter.
-Mix the cinnamon and brown sugar in a small bowl.
-Make sure your apples are peeled and finely chopped.
-Pour 1/2 of the cake batter into the pan.
-Cover with the apples.
-Cover the apples with about 3/4 of the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture.

-Cover with the remaining cake batter.
-Sprinkle the top with the remaining cinnamon/brown sugar mixture.

-Bake as directed on the back of the box until a knife inserted come out clean.

-Let the cake cool for 10 minutes and then turn it over onto a plate.
-Gradually add teaspoons of warm water to the confectioner's sugar until you get a smooth/thick glaze (probably 4-5T).
-Pour over the cake.

-Slice and serve.

Thanks I will try that out. :) Have lots of apples to figure out what to do with. Planning on canning some already made apple pie filling, applesauce maybe and then apple butter? Guess I will see how this goes.
