How to Make Apple Cake with Caramel-Pecan Glaze

  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until well-blended, but do not overwork.
  • Add in the apples and mix together so they are evenly distributed through the batter. This is a pretty thick batter so you'll get a good workout for your hand.
  • Pour the batter into a greased and floured tube or bundt pan and smooth the top.
  • Place in a 350-degree oven and bake around 80 minutes or until a toothpick inserted close to the center comes out with moist crumbs sticking to it.
  • Remove and cool on a rack about 30 minutes before sliding a knife around the edges and then unmolding.
  • Simmer over medium-low heat until the syrup turns brown.
  • Turn off the heat and very carefully and slowly (because it will splatter).
  • For caramel glaze:
  • Take 1/2 cup of soy milk and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  • Now add 1/2 cup lightly toasted pecans and stir (you can chop the pecans if you like).
  • Pour over the top of the cake and allow the glaze to set before serving.
