An AlohaDreams recipe

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Author: Betsy Edwards
  • 2 cups flour (measure your flour - this is 240 grams)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs - beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 cups apples peeled, cored and diced (I use 4 medium size Honey Crisp apples)
  • 1 cup pecan halves - roasted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan with butter or cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients until well combined.

  3. Add in the wet ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon or rubber scrapper.

  4. Add in the apples and pecans. The batter will be VERY thick.
  5. Spoon out batter into prepared baking dish, spreading with the back of the  spoon or gently patting out with hands.

  6. In a small bowl, whisk together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle evenly all over top of cake.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cake will form a crunchy "crust" on top as it bakes.

  8. It's delicious with ice cream, whipped topping, caramel or just simply serve by itself - any way you choose it's fabulous.

MAKE AHEAD NOTE: Can be made up to 1 day in advance and stored covered on the counter. It's still very good the next day.
