#660 - Amish Apple Cake

My mom made Amish Apple Cake for us 2 times when she was here.  It's super easy and tastes amazing!

Amish Apple Cake
makes 9x13 pan, preheat oven to 350 degrees
1 cup pecans, chopped
5 cups cooking apples, chopped medium sized (I used 5 large Granny Smith apples)
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons grated nutmeg
2 cups flour (I used cake flour, but I think regular ap flour should work perfect too)

Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy.  Beat in eggs.  Mix in baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Add flour until blended.  Stir in apples and nuts. Pour in greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 30-45 minutes until center top springs back when touched.

You can also make a caramel sauce to drizzle on top, but there is no need for this, it's amazing without it.

It gets better with age too.
