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
