Try this delicious Apple Pecan Spice Cake when the apples are ripe on the tree. It uses the wonderful scents and flavors of fall–cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, pecans.
The apples and applesauce keep it moist for many days, and the powdered sugar glaze adds that special touch both for the eye and tongue.
Great for potlucks, too. It uses a 10-cup Bundt cake pan and will serve 12 or more. See more Bundt Cake Recipes Here.
