Debbie's notes for this recipe:
I love this cake in fall but its good anytime of the year. Its a dense cake but its very moist.The tartness of the apples , all the spices and the slight hint of the citrus from the orange compliment eachother nicely.It has a slightly crisp outside and the inside is moist and full of apples and pecans. I really like it for breakfast with a cup of coffee but its good anytime of day.

I swear that the autumn leaves began to fall just as I pulled this delicious cake from the oven. What a wonderful way to welcome in the season!!
