  • 3/4 cups butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon each baking powder and baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 golden delicious apples peeled, cored and grated
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
Caramel Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 5 tablespoons whipping cream 35%


In large bowl, beat together butter, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until combined. Beat in sour cream and milk.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; stir into butter mixture. Stir in apples and three-quarters of the pecans. Scrape into greased and floured 10-inch (3 L) Bundt pan, smoothing top. Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool completely.

Caramel Sauce: Meanwhile, in saucepan, cook butter, sugar and lemon juice over medium heat, stirring, until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Cook, without stirring, until light amber in colour, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; standing back and averting face, stir in cream. Return to heat; cook until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Pour into large bowl; let cool to lukewarm.

Pour half of the caramel sauce over top of cake; sprinkle with remaining pecans. Serve cake with remaining caramel sauce.
