Apple Banana Blueberry Cake

Like everyone else that keeps banana's in the house, sometimes they get a little too ripe.  I was tired of the standard banana bread recipes, I also had blueberries in the freezer and a couple apples in the frig... so I started the hunt for something new.  I found this recipe on the Food Network site.

The changes:
 2 cups of grated apple
1 cup of blueberries
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg.
I also baked in a bundt pan for the 60 minutes.

I also added a vanilla glaze/frosting
1-1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoons of melted butter
2 tablespoons heavy cream

I poured over warm cake and let it run.  If too thick add a little water.
