Ingredients

  • For the cake:
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 ?? teaspoons of freshly ground cinnamon (preferably Ceylon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 7 apples, preferably organic peeled and diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped pecans
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • For the glaze:
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Cooking Directions

    To prepare the cake:

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter and flour an 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

    In a mixing bowl, beat sugars, oil and vanilla until well-blended. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and gradually add to the sugar and eggs, mixing just until well-blended.

    Fold in the apples, pecans and turn into pan.

    Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours (begin to check after 50 minutes), until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan while preparing the glaze.

    To prepare the glaze:

    In a medium sized saute pan, melt the butter. Add sugar, salt. and cream. Stir until blended and cook over medium-low heat for 2 minutes. Increase heat and boil for about 2 minutes until dime sized bubbles cover the surface of the glaze. Remove from heat and cool slightly until glaze begins to thicken. Spoon over cake.
