This old-fashioned recipe uses simple ingredients, all of which you'll usually have on hand.
Here's what you need:
sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, water, vanilla, salt, chopped apples, pecans
Cream sugars and butter together in mixer. Add in the eggs and beat for 1 minute.
Sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. Add to creamed mixture and stir until combined.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. water
2 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
3 cups finely chopped peeled apples
1/2 chopped pecans
Cream sugar and butter in mixer. Add in eggs and beat for 1 minute. Sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. Add to creamed mixture, and mix to combine. Add water, vanilla, apples and pecans, stirring to mix. Spoon into greased 9x13 cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until cake tests done with toothpick. May serve with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.
The aroma of the baking apples, butter and sugar is swoon-worthy. It is best served warm with ice cream or whipped topping, but tomorrow I will share with you something that will take this yummy fall treat to a whole new level...Lee's Caramel Frosting.
