2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons apple pie spice*
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 cup water
2 medium (2 cups) apples, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups hot water
1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
Sweetened whipped cream, if desired


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine flour, baking soda, apple pie spice and salt in small bowl. Set aside.

Combine 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; gradually add flour mixture alternately with corn syrup and 1 cup water, beating well after each addition.

Place apples and pecans into ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Pour batter over top; sprinkle with 3/4 cup brown sugar.

Combine 1 1/2 cups hot water and 1/3 cup melted butter in medium bowl; carefully pour over top of batter. Bake for 35 to 50 minutes or until cake is cracked on top and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired.

*Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves and 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice.

Recipe Tip

We recommend using a sweet-tart apple that retains its shape during cooking such as Granny Smith, Jonathan or Braeburn. When shopping for apples, look for fruit that feels firm, with no soft spots or dark bruises. Store apples refrigerated.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I substituted 3/4 cup light corn syrup plus 1/4 cup molasses for the 1 cup of dark corn syrup and 1 cup of apple cider for the water used in the batter. The cake was exceptionally tasty and very moist.

We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
