Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes


* 1/2 cup chopped pecans
* 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
* 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 2 sticks butter, at room temperature
* 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
* 4 eggs, at room temperature
* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* 1 can (20.5 ounces) more fruit apple pie filling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with non-stick foil or grease generously with butter.

Stir together pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.

Whisk together flour and baking powder in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until well-combined, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla extract.

Beat flour mixture into egg mixture one-third at a time until completely blended. Batter will be very thick. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Using a tablespoon, drop apple pie filling evenly on top of batter. Sprinkle pecan mixture on top of apples.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes until center tests done with a toothpick. Cool to room temperature. Lift cake out on the foil and cut for serving.

Yield: 24 to 36 servings, depending on cut size
