Apple Pie Pecan Cake Recipe

We made this cake for my brother-in-law one Thanksgiving. It was so easy and turned out so moist and delicious. The pecans placed on top and the sides add a little nutty goodness to an already perfect cake.

Filling for Apple Pie Pecan Cake

Place the apple slices, brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and water into a small sauce pan, stir to combine. Sprinkle in the cornstarch and cook over medium heat until the mixture begins to thicken. Add the chopped pecans and remove from heat to cool.

When cakes are cool, run a knife around the edges of the pecan cakes and invert onto serving plates.
Turn one cake upside down onto a serving plate, (giving you a level surface for stacking).
Spread apple pie filling onto first layer cake. Place second layer on with flat side down and frost top and sides with the coconut pecan frosting.
Arrange whole pecans around the sides and top of your apple pie pecan cake.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.

Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.

And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!

Nothing says "I Love You" more than a surprise dessert made from one of our homemade cake recipes.

Suppling Tips for Healthy Homemade Cakes

When Baking with Butter:

Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool” butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.

When Mixing Cake Batter:

You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.

Cake Flour:

Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.

Green Food:

The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
