  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • ½ tsp Kosher salt

  1. Preheat oven to 325° F and heavily coat a 10 cup Bundt pan with baking spray.

  3. Place honey, applesauce, oil and orange juice in a mixer bowl and beat with the whisk attachment to combine. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

  4. Slowly add flour mixture and beat for 2 minutes to make a smooth batter.

  5. Toss the chopped apple and walnuts with the remaining tablespoon of flour and pour into batter. Spread batter in prepared pan and bake for 55 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
