- 1-1/2 c. pecan pieces, divided
- 2 eggs
- 1-1/2 c. sugar
- 1/2 c. canola oil
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 c. flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 c. peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped apples (4 to 5 large apples)
- Shortening for greasing the Bundt pan
Very finely chop ½ cup of the pecan pieces. Grease the Bundt pan and line the greased pan with the pecans (covering the entire inside of the pan). Lightly press them to the sides.
Set oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs till light colored. Add sugar, oil, and vanilla. Blend well. Mix together flour, soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to egg mixture. Add apples and the remaining cup of (coarsely chopped) pecan pieces to the batter. Bake for 1 hour – or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (It may seem like there is not enough batter, but it will be delicious.) Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, or cheddar cheese.
