Apple Cake

This is one of my favorite desserts.  I love the apples, nuts, and especially the brown sugar sauce that goes over the top.

Apple Cake
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg, fresh grated
3-5 cups chopped apples
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 tsp. vanilla

Sauce
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Butter and flour a 10″ tube pan.

Beat eggs with sugar until thick and form a ribbon when a spoonful is lifted and dribbled.

Add melted butter and beat.  When blended, stir in flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and blend.

Stir in apples, pecans, and vanilla and mix.

Put in pan. Bake 1 hr 15 min or until cooked.  When cake is done, cool 5 mins in pan and then turn over on serving platter.

Sauce
Melt butter, add brown sugar, milk and pinch of salt and boil for 3 mins.  Prick holes in top of cake and pour sauce slowly over the cake.

Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired.

I would like to give credit to the person whose cake this is, but the friend I got the recipe from said she got it from a caterer in Kansas City over 15 years ago and she doesn’t know who it was.  Hopefully they won’t mind me reproducing it here, since they were willing to share it before.
