1 tube cake



  • 2 cups white sugar

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups thinly sliced apples

  • ½ cup chopped pecans


  • ½ cup butter

  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup fluted tube baking pan (such as a Bundt® pan).

  2. Combine white sugar and vegetable oil in the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment; beat in eggs and stir in vanilla extract.

  3. Combine flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture until just blended. Stir in apples and pecans by hand to form a very heavy batter. Pour into the prepared pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave cake in the pan.

  5. Combine butter, brown sugar, milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook until a thickened glaze is formed, about 1 minute.

  6. Pull the cake away from the sides of the pan with a fork. Pour glaze onto the cake immediately. Let cake cool in pan, about 10 minutes.
