Harvest Cake

A former neighbor and good cook, Marie, gave me this recipe. I'm anxious to try it for the holidays. Let me know how you like it if you make it before I do.

3/4 c. whole-wheat flour
3/4 c. unbleached flour
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. light brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 eggs
1/4 c. oil
1/2 c. applesauce
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. grated carrots (or 1 c. carrots & 1 c. chopped apples)
3/4 c. mini chocolate chips
1/2 c. walnuts, chopped

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. In a smaller bowl, mix the eggs with the oil then add the applesauce and vanilla. Beat thoroughly, then add to dry ingredients. Add carrots, apples, nuts and chips.
Pour mixture into a greased & floured bundt pan. Bake in a 350° oven for 45-50 minutes. Cool in pan 30 minutes before inverting onto plate.

1 c. confectionery sugar
1 T. butter, melted
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Just enough milk to make a thin glaze. Pour over cooled cake.
