No-Bowl Fresh Apple-Pecan Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by pansies

Another recipe from the same magazine article where I found the No-Bowl Banana-Nut Cake way back in 1987. This one requires a little more work since the apples require peeling and chopping. I haven't tried this particular recipe yet but will since the banana cake was so good and so easy.

I was going to wait to taste until it cooled, but well.. I'm not a patient person. It's tasty, not too sweet as I expected at first. I topped it with some white icing with cinnamon stirred in. I only had to bake mine for 25 minutes in a glass 8x8.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spread chopped apples in an ungreased 8 or 9 inch square baking pan. Sprinkle with the sugar and let stand 10 minutes to draw out some juice.
  2. Add flour, cinnamon, baking powder, soda, and salt. Toss together with apples to coat evenly.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to pan and stir until well blended.
  4. With a rubber spatula, scrape any ingredients clinging to sides, corners or bottom of the pan into the batter. Even the batter in the pan.
  5. Bake at 350 F for 45 to 50 minutes or until a pick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  6. Cool in the pan on a rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
