Apple Cake With Caramel Glaza

Original recipe calls for oil in the cake, not butter, but I had only butter on hand. It makes the cake brown very nicely, almost like a tarte tatin. The secret that makes this cake so good is below!

Prep
Cook
Serves 12people
Ingredients
for the cake
1
cup (2 stick) butter (the secret, extra butter!)
1 1/3
cups sugar
2
large eggs
1
tsp vanilla extract
2
cups all-purpose flour
3/4
tsp baking soda
1
tsp baking powder
3/4
tsp salt
2
cup chopped, peeled apples (about 2)
1
cup chopped pecans or walnuts
for the caramel sauce
1
cup brown sugar
1/3
cup heavy cream
1/2
cup butter
1
tsp vanilla
1
pinch salt
Directions
1.
Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a loaf pan.
2.
In a large bowl cream the butter and the sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the eggs, beat well, then mix in vanilla.
3.
In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, soda, powder and salt. Add these to the wet ingredients and mix until blended. Fold in the apples and the nuts. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour, or until toothpick comes out clean.
4.
Meanwhile, combine the butter, sugar, and cream in a small saucepan. Over medium heat, melt them together stirring more or less constantly. When the edges start to simmer, cook for 3 more minutes, then add the vanilla and remove from the heat.
5.
When the cake has cooled for 20 minutes, prick all over with a fork and spoon the caramel sauce evenly on the top.
