Chunky Apple Cake

This tender, moist cake is full of old-fashioned comfort, and the yummy brown sugar sauce makes it special. For a festive occasion, top with a dollop of whipped cream.


Ingredients:
    1/2 cup butter, softened
    2 cups sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 eggs
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    6 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • BUTTERSCOTCH SAUCE:
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup butter, cubed
    1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar and vanilla.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well (batter will be stiff). Stir in apples until well combined.
  4. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until top is lightly browned and springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 30 minutes before serving.
  5. In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar and butter. Cook over medium heat until butter is melted. Gradually add cream. Bring to a slow boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Serve with cake.
