  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups Granny Smith apples peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

for topping:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • caramel sauce


  1. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add apples; sauté 5 minutes or until softened. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  2. Prepare Streusel Topping: stir together flour, pecans, melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt until blended. Crumble into small pieces.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°.
  4. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar and mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition.
  5. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  6. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
  7. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9-inch springform pan; top with apples. Drizzle with 1/2 cup caramel sauce; sprinkle with streusel topping.
  8. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Cover loosely with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning; bake 25 to 30 minutes or until center is set. (A toothpick will not come out clean.) Cool in pan on a wire rack 30 minutes; remove sides of pan. Cool completely.
