Apple Pecan Cake

Apple pecan cake is made with butter, brown sugar, and apples and pecans.

Cook Time: 40 minutes

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups peeled and finely chopped apple
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

Cream together butter, shortening, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and the granulated sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Add sifted dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternately with the 1 cup milk. Fold in chopped apple.

Pour batter into a generously buttered and floured 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

Combine 1/2 cup chopped pecans with 1/2 cup brown sugar; sprinkle over top of cake. Bake at 350° for about 30 to 40 minutes, or until done. Cake will bounce back when lightly touched in center.
