  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 medium apples ,shredded (about 3 cups)
  • 1 cup sweetened, shredded coconut flakes
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
For the glaze
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese ,softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Generously coat a bundt pan with nonstick spray.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, oil, orange juice, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla extract; mix until thoroughly combined. Fold in the apples, coconut, and pecans.

  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 75 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.

  4. Allow cake to cool almost completely.

  5. Make the glaze - in a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese powdered sugar until smooth. Blend in the milk, and vanilla until combined.

  6. Loosen the sides of the cake from the pan and carefully turn it out onto a stand, plate, or serving dish. Pour the glaze evenly over the top. 

  7. Slice, serve, and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

My oven runs hot, so this cake takes about 70 minutes for me. If your oven is normal, check it at 70 minutes and continue checking every 5 minutes until a tester comes out clean. It should not take any longer than 90 minutes.
