Apple Walnut Bundt Cake from Rose’s Baking Basics
Serves 12 to 14 │ Oven Temperature: 350°F/175°C │ Baking Time: 50 to 60 minutes
This is the perfect apple cake for the fall season, but it can be enjoyed any time of the year. It is great to have this Bundt cake in your repertoire as it is easy to make and stays moist and flavorful for 5 days at room temperature, up to 10 days refrigerated. Because it is made with oil, it can be enjoyed at room temperature or cold. The caramel glaze is an optional but fabulous accompaniment.
The pan must be a minimum 12 cup capacity, such as a Nordic Ware Anniversary Bundt Pan with 10-15 cup capacity, or a 12 cup Bundt pan, coated with baking spray with flour; or a 16 cup two-piece angel food pan, bottom lined with parchment, then coated with baking spray with flour
· 3 large eggs (½ cup plus 1 ¼ tablespoons, or 150 g)
· 1 cup (100 g) walnut halves
· 2 ½ cups (300 g) flour, lightly spooned into the cup and leveled off
· 1 teaspoon (5.5 g) baking soda
· 1 teaspoon (6 g) sea salt
· 2 teaspoons (4.4 g) ground cinnamon
· 4 large tart apples, diced (4 cups/525 g)
· 1 ¼ cups (269 g) canola or safflower oil
· 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar
· ¾ cup (163 g) light brown sugar
· 2 teaspoons (10 ml) pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven
• 20 minutes before toasting the walnuts, set an oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Set the oven at 350°F/175°C
Mise en place
• 30 minutes to 1 hour ahead, set the eggs on the counter at room temperature (65° to 75°F/19° to 24°C)
• Toast and chop the walnuts: Spread the walnuts evenly on a cookie sheet and bake for 5 minutes. Turn the walnuts onto a clean dish town and roll and rub them around to loosen the skins. Discard any loose skins and let the nuts cool completely. Chop medium coarse.
• In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
• Peel, core, and cut the apples into ⅛ to ¼ inch dice.
Make the batter
1. Into the bowl of a stand mixer, weigh or measure the eggs. Add the oil, granulated and brown sugars, and the vanilla. With the flat beater, beat on medium for 1 minute, until blended
2. Add the flour mixture and beat on low for 20 seconds, just until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl
3. Detach the bowl from the stand and with a large spoon stir in the apples and walnuts. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan
Bake the cake
4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a wire cake tester inserted near the center comes out clean and the cake springs back when pressed lightly in the center
Cool the cake
5. Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. If using a straight sided pan, run a metal spatula between the sides of the pan and the cake. Invert the cake onto a wire rack that has been lightly coated with nonstick cooking spray and cool completely for about 1½ hours
Room temperature, 5 days; refrigerated, 10 days; frozen, 2 month.

Content-wise, it's exactly what I was looking for. Detailed instructions for pastry basics, like pate a choux, pastry cream, etc. Tons of pictures for the various steps, and pages of troubleshooting, i.e., if this goes wrong, then it was probably because... The recipes are given in both volume and mass, which is good. I know it's better to bake by mass, but sometimes volume is just easier. And the recipes are extremely precise (Who would give a measurement of 1/2 cup minus 3/4 tsp?...or something like that...can't remember it exactly). It also gives options (using the food processor versus doing by hand). It clearly explains upfront what you should do ahead of time (mise en place) and what equipment will be needed. The only thing that is not perfect, is that because it's soooo detailed, sometimes it takes a while to find your place in a recipe and see what's next on the fly...even if you read it ahead of time. But that's just the way it is when you have that level of detail.
I'm kind of a Food Network junkie, so it's nice to see all these pastries they talk about clearly explained. I would say it's a very good teaching book, but would still be of value for more experienced bakers. (So far I've made 3 recipes...all very good). Very, very pleased with this purchase.
