Classic Fresh Dutch Apple Cake with Caramel Glaze
Ingredients
7
apples (preferably organic)
3
cups unbleached all-purpose flour

recipe Caramel Glaze
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter and flour a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. Peel apples; quarter, core and cut each quarter in half lengthwise, then crosswise (16 pieces from each apple).
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg; set aside.
  3. In a very large mixing bowl whisk eggs to combine. Whisk in oil, sugars, and vanilla until well-blended. Gradually whisk in the flour mixture just until well blended. Fold apples and pecans into batter (batter will be thick and just coat apples). Turn into prepared pan, spreading to edges of pan.
  4. Bake about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack while preparing glaze. Spoon glaze over warm cake.
