This has a gazillion calories per serving, but when you taste it you'll say "who cares?". Great for a dessert to impress at your next potluck or office .

The cake is a tweaked version of my mother's apple cake, but I conjured up the icing myself based on my praline candy recipe.

You are going to love this cake.

  3. Sift together flour, soda, salt, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl
    Add pecans and stir to coat the pecans
  4. After apple mixture has set for 30 minutes, gradually add flour mixture to the apples, and mix well using low speed on electric mixer.

    Leave the apples a little chunky.

    Continue mixing as you stir in vanilla extract.
  5. Pour into bundt or tube pan, and cook for 55 minutes.

    Test with toothpick inserted into thickest part of cake, if it comes out clean remove from oven; if not cook another ten minutes
