Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Thoroughly butter or spray a Bundt pan with vegetable spray. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and spices. Set aside. In large bowl, whisk together sugars. Add oil and eggs, and whisk until well combined. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Fold in apples, nuts and cinnamon chips. Do not overmix. Pour in prepared pan and bake for about 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Gently invert cake onto wire rack and allow to cool completely. Browned butter icing: In saucepan, cook butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until dark golden brown and fragrant, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for about 5 minutes. In large, microwave-safe bowl, whisk together cream cheese and warm browned butter until smooth. Add about half of the sugar and whisk until combined. Whisk in milk and vanilla. Add remaining sugar and whisk until smooth and creamy. If icing is too thick, microwave in 20 second bursts, stirring frequently, until icing reaches desired consistency. Drizzle over cooled apple cake.
