After my grandma passed this summer I took her cookbooks so I could type up her recipes and my hope is to create a family cookbook.When I saw this recipe for Apple Cake it caught my eye and now that it is apple picking season what better time to bake it up!
Start with some nice baking apples. These are Gala’s. Granny Smiths would work well also. You want a nice baking apple.
Now Chop them up
Set these and the chopped pecans aside. I used already chopped pecans. I am thankful for that option. I remember picking pecans for my great grandparents as a kid and cracking them. It is a ton of work.
Next we make the wet ingredients nice and fluffy.
Then add the dry ingredients.
I did reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp and upped the cinnamon to 2 tsp.
Mix it up until it looks a little something like this:
and then add apples and pecans.
Add it to a bundt pan
and bake for 1.5 hours at 300 degrees.
We topped it off with a yummy caramel sauce and it was delicious!
I hope you like it!
