Friday with Friends – Fall Recipe!

***************************  Revision   ***************************************************
I was reading over this recipe today and saw that the cooking time was wrong, it should be 1 &1/2 hours, NOT 1/2 hours.  Hope this didn't cause any problems for anyone.  Also the recipe says "pour" the batter, it's more like spoon it.  I made it today for the first time this season and it is super thick.

This cake is a favorite of my family and friends.  Hope you will try it and let me know how it turned out :)

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup oil
1 cup chopped pecans
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
4 apples, peeled and chopped. (I like a tart apple, like granny smith or gala, both good)
Mix eggs, sugar vanilla & oil in bowl.  Mix flour, soda, cinnamon and salt.  Add apples & nuts to dry ingredients.  Mix all together.  Pour into well greased Bundt pan.  Bake for  1 &1/2 hours at 325.  Cool for 15 minutes.

Caramel Sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 butter (use real butter)
1/2 cup whipping cream

Bring to boil.  Serve over slices of cake.

When I take this cake to a gathering, I turn it out onto a serving platter, poke it a few times with a butter knife and then pour the sauce over it.  Good stuff.

I'm linked up with Friday with Friends.  Hop on over there for more fall recipes!!

My aunt used to make the best apple cake...and they always stir up good family memories for me. Not to mention - they are delish:)

I'm so glad you joined Frida with Friends this week!! Can't wait to try this cake:)

OK, this is not just a joke!! On a blog last week, someone posted an apple cake, but didn't include the recipe. I have been wanting to bake an apple cake all week and couldn't find a recipe like I wanted! I am trying this one ASAP!! Thank you for sharing.
