    There's a favorite restaurant around here that has apple cake that me and my wife love...
    We always think about trying to make it, and yours seems to have some of the stuff
    we think we'd need to replicate it... It sounds good!

    We'll give it a shot soon...
    I'm trying to lose a bunch of weight before the New Year, but also, our anniversary is next week---
    so I have an excuse!

    Thanks for sharing...

    Oh my, this one does sound good. Funny how I've never heard of apple cake before as Fall usually sees me with a ton of apples to use. Think I'll make it this week if I get a chance. Do you just serve it as is?

    I do, usually with a cup of coffee.

    It is the kind of cake that doesn't need icing.

    Buy if you want
    kool whip, icing, or vanilla ice cream

    This is a fairly involved cake to make, but the results are worth the effort.

    Scott Peacock from Atlanta's Watershed made this cake as the Restaurant's signature dessert . It will finish you off....

    Cake:
    1 cup light brown sugar - packed
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1.5 cups vegetable oil
    3 eggs
    3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    2 tsp ground cinnamon (I use Ceylon)
    1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
    1/2 tsp salt
    6 apples, peeled,cored and diced into 1/2 inch cubes (we use Granny Smith or Golden Delicious)
    1.25 cups chopped Pecans
    2.25 tsp Vanilla

    Glaze:

    1/2 stick unsalted butter
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup light brown sugar
    pinch of salt
    1/2 cup heavy cream

    To prepare cake:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    Butter and flour an 8x13 inch baking pan.

    In a mixing bowl, beat both sugars and oil until well blended. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Sift together flour, soda, cinnamon,nutmeg and salt gradually adding to the sugar and eggs, mixing until just blended. Stir in the apples, pecans and vanilla and pour into the pan.

    Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours (begin checking after 50 minutes) until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan while preparing the glaze.

    To prepare glaze:

    In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add both sugars and salt.Stir continually until blended over medium/low heat for 2 minutes, continue to stir while adding cream and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

    With a skewer, poke holes all over the cake. Pour the glaze over the entire cake top.

    Enjoy!!
