Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 4 medium tart apples, peeled and chopped (4 cups)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 package (11 ounces) butterscotch chips

Directions

In a large bowl, beat the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla until well blended. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended. Stir in apples and pecans.
Pour into a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with chips. Bake at 325° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cover loosely with foil during the last 10-15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 12 servings.

"I love the taste of this cake. The problem is I can't get it done without burning the bottom. I have reduced the baking temp. and it still burns. Not a cheap cake to make. Unhappy."

"This is absolutely the BEST cake I have ever made. I did omit the butterscotch chips and used a caramel frosting and it turned out super!!! I will definitely make this many times."

"I had the same problem. The edges where the cake is cooked is delicious, but I've tried this several times, even increasing the bake time to an hour and a half, and nothing has worked. I might try using a 15 in. pan?"

"When I made this cake, it bubbled over the sides and the middle didn't bake within the 40 minutes. It also stuck to the sides of my pan. Not sure where I went wrong?"
