Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grease and flour a(14 cup) bundt pan and set aside
2
Prepare cream cheese filling - Beat the cream cheese, butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until blended and smooth. Add egg, flour and vanilla and beat until just combined. Set aside.
3
Prepare cake batter.
4
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake pecans for 5 - 7 minutes until lightly toasted and fragrant.
5
Meanwhile, stir flour, both sugars, salt, baking soda and spices together in a large bowl. Stir in eggs, then oil, apple sauce and vanilla. Stir in apples and pecans.
6
Spoon 2/3's of the apple batter into the prepared pan, then spoon cream cheese filling over the apple mixture, leaving a 1 inch border around the edges of the pan. Spoon remaining apple batter over the cream cheese filling.
7
Bake cake at 350 degrees for 1 hour - 1 hour 15 minutes, or until a long wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cake in the pan, on a wire rack for about 1 hour. Remove cake from pan and cool completely, about an additional hour.

When cake has cooled, prepare praline frosting. Combine brown sugar, butter and milk in saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute
9
Remove pan from heat and add vanilla extract, then powdered sugar. Whisk together until totally combined. If needed, pour frosting through a fine strainer to remove any powdered sugar lumps. Cool frosting slightly(about 5 minutes) until it has begun to thicken slightly, but is still pourable. Pour over cake and garnish with pecans if desired and enjoy!!!!
