Sour Cream Apple Cake


2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, beaten
2 cups finely chopped & peeled apples

Preheat oven to 350 deg. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, butter, and brown sugar. Blend together until crumbly, using a mixer on low speed. Stir in chopped pecans. Press 2 3/4 cups of the crumb mixture into an ungreased 13X9-inch pan.

To remaining mixture add cinnamon, soda, salt, sour cream, vanilla and egg. Blend well with mixer. Stir in the chopped apples. Spoon evenly over the crumb layer. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cut into squares and serve with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired. Serve warm or cold.
