Maple-Pecan Apple Cake with Maple Buttercream
recipe courtesy of Bake from Scratch Magazine
Take advantage of both peak pecan and apple season with this one-layer wonder! Delicately crunchy pecans from Schermer Pecans and sweet chunks of Honeycrisp apple stud this rich, incredibly tender cake. Meanwhile, maple syrup, found in both the batter and buttercream, adds a sweet, caramelized flavor to the cake that plays perfectly with the toasted, nutty flavor of the pecans. Each bite is a perfectly balanced combination of warm, buttery cake, sweet apple, crisp pecans, and soft, incredibly creamy Maple Buttercream. This cake is a true testament to the fact that sometimes the simplest desserts are the most delicious!
