COPY, PASTE, SAVE!! Thank you Vera, this does indeed look fabulous! You'll have to post how everyone liked it. I'll give this a go when the chocolate chip cake is gone. (So...tomorrow or Sunday!) Thanks again!

Thanks VeraBlue for the nice recipe. I have lots of red delicious apples sitting in my fridge, so will try your recipe soon. I guess 4 apples should be sufficient. Since pecans are not available here, will replace with walnuts which are in season now.

Lou got in from Philly much later than usual...it was close to 9pm. By the time he got here, I was well into a chocolate covered cherry martini. I made him a couple of burgers which he loved. About an hour later, we both had a slice of cake and it was delicious! The apples make it extemely moist, but not overly sweet. The caramel topping hardens a bit, rather like on the outside of a caramel apple. We went to bed about 1:30, just about the time my son was getting his first piece. I told my daughter about it, who lives in a dorm in NYC....and she put in a request for a couple of slices to be delivered when her dad goes into the city today.
All in all, I am extremely pleased with the way this cake turned out. Now I only have 769 apples left to cook with

I don't think the type of apples will make much difference other than being softer or firmer, depending on the type.
