- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¾ cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons softened butter
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 medium apples, peeled and cored, cut into wedges
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 cup chopped pecans, divided (we used Schermer pecans)
Pre-heat oven to 325°.
Mix flour, baking powder and cinnamon together and set aside. In a medium bowl beat sugar into softened butter until well incorporated. Add eggs 1 at a time, with beaters on medium, and blend in the milk and vanilla.
Gradually add in the dry mixture until batter is well blended; it will be thick. Fold in ½ cup of the Schermer pecans.
Pour the batter into a 9-inch greased and floured round cake pan and insert apple wedges into the batter. Crumble the brown sugar on top of the batter, followed by the remaining ½ cup of chopped pecans. Bake approximately 30 minutes, until sugar is browned and cake insert comes out clean.
