Apple Cake With Brown Sugar Sauce

This Fall we bought apples from the local orchard. We dried some in the dehydrator, canned apple butter, and canned apple pie filling. We had so many apples I was sick of apples. But I know we will enjoy the fruit of our labors this winter. But we didn't just save them for this winter, we enjoyed a few while we were drying, and canning. One way we enjoyed them was by making this wonderful apple cake. My husband's cousin's wife shared this reicpe with us last year. It was so yummy, one of the best we have ever had. And, of course, I want to share the recipe with you.

Old Fashion Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Sauce

1 cup of all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
2 Tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
3/4 unsweetend applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups chopped, peeled tart apples
1/2 chopped pecans

Brown Sugar Sauce
3 tbs butter or margine
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup of milk ( I use 2%)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine the dry ingredients in a gallon ziplock bag, shake to incorporate the leavening and spices. In a mixing bowl beat the eggs. Add applesauce, oil and vanilla. Sitr in the dry ingredients; fold in the apples and pecans. Pour mixture into a 13x9x2 baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350 F for 40-45 mins or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. In a saucepan, melt the butter or margine. Add the brown sugar, milk and vanilla. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour over warm cake. Serve warm.
