LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch round or 8-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix all filling ingredients; set aside. In medium bowl, mix 1 1/3 cups flour, the sugar, orange peel, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until small crumbs form. Reserve 1 cup of the crumb mixture for topping. To remaining crumb mixture in bowl, add sour cream, eggs and vanilla; beat with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until blended.
  • 3 Spread batter in pan. Spoon filling over batter and spread evenly. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture and the pecans; pat gently.
  • 4 Bake 65 to 70 minutes or until light golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging. Cool 30 minutes. Serve warm if desired.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

"This cake has three layers—a tender pound cake base topped with a juicy fresh apple filling and crisp crumb topping. The texture contrast is delightful. It’s also easy to make because one mixture is used for both the topping and the start of the cake batter. The inspiration was a pile of beautiful fall apples." Priscilla Yee

Try a piece of cake warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with caramel topping!

Braeburn apples work well in this cake; or try another crisp, sweet-tart apple such as Cortland or Gala.
