Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Begin your baking adventure by preheating your oven to a cozy 325°F. This warm embrace will be the perfect environment for your Apple Walnut Cake to rise and shine. It's like prepping a warm, comfy bed for your cake to snuggle in and bloom.
Pro Tip: Use an oven thermometer for accurate heating.

Step 2: Combine Dry Ingredients

In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, cinnamon, and baking soda until they are as harmonious as a choir, setting the stage for a masterpiece. This mix will form the sweet and spicy backbone of your cake, promising delightful flavors in every bite.
Pro Tip: Aerate your flour before measuring for best results.

Step 3: Add Wet Ingredients

To your symphony of dry ingredients, introduce the eggs, oil, and vanilla extract. Whisk them in with the passion of a conductor, blending until the mixture embodies a smooth and even texture, ready to embrace the chunky textures of nuts and apple with open arms.
Pro Tip: Ensuring all ingredients are at room temperature helps with mixing.

Step 4: Fold in the Fun

Now, the moment of texture! Fold the chopped walnuts and apples into your batter. Each piece should be coated in your lovingly prepared mix, ensuring every slice of cake is studded with nutty crunches and sweet fruit surprises, making every bite a treasure hunt.
Pro Tip: Cut apples into similar-sized pieces for even baking.

Step 5: Prepare for the Oven

Transport your treasure-laden batter into a 9x9 inch pan, smoothing the top like tucking a child into bed. This snug fit is just right for the cake to expand and rise, dreaming of golden edges and a perfectly cooked center as it bakes.
Pro Tip: Lining the pan with parchment paper ensures easy removal.

Step 6: Bake to Perfection

Slide your prepared pan into the oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. As the aroma of baked apples and cinnamon fills your kitchen, anticipate the moment you can finally taste the loving warmth of your creation. The wait is a small price for the slice of heaven that awaits.
Pro Tip: Insert a toothpick into the center to check for doneness.

Step 7: Serve and Enjoy

Whether warmed or cooled, each slice of your Apple Walnut Cake will be a comforting embrace of sweet, spiced, and nutty flavors. Serve with a dollop of cream, a scoop of ice cream, or simply as is, and watch the slices disappear, one soul-soothing bite at a time.
