Apple Pecan Cake with Caramel Glaze

Jenna made this for our last Financial Peace class.  I cannot begin to tell you how yummy this was.  Everyone who tried it liked it. 

Apple Pecan Cake with Caramel Glaze

1 1/2 Cups of cooking oil
2 Cups sugar
4 Eggs
3 Cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 tsps vanilla
3 1/2 Cups diced apples (approximately 3-4 apples)
1 Cup of chopped pecans

Caramel Glaze

3/4 Cups butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 Cup light brown sugar
1/4 Cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 325°
In a large mixing bowl, add oil, sugar and eggs and mix until nice and creamy.
Next, add together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, then add to mixing bowl and mix well.  Once mixture is well blended, add in vanilla and mix well.  Add in the apples and pecans and stir until well blended.
Pour into generously greased and floured tube pan (you can use two loaf pans in place of a tube pan).
Bake at 325° for approximately 1 hour. Check using a tooth pick at about 50 minutes, and if it comes out clean, then your cake is done. If using the loaf pans, make sure to check it at about 50 minutes as well.
Making the glaze
In a small pan, melt butter over low heat.  Stir in the brown sugar and milk.  Bring to a boil, and let boil for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and add in the vanilla. Let cool.
Once caramel glaze is cooled, pour over the top of cake.
