Apple Dapple Cake

I didn't tell the kids this had apples in it... all three claimed it was "really good and the best cake ever".  Hubby said, "I can't think of anything better than this with a cup of coffee in the morning, in fact I think I will have some."

3 cups all purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs (beaten)
1 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup apple juice
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups finely chopped cooking apples
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup butter

Grease and flour a 9x13 pan or baking dish.
Preheat oven to 350 for a pan (typically metal) and 325 for a dish (typically glass).
In a LARGE bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
Make a well in the center and set aside.
In a medium bowl combine eggs, oil, apple juice, and vanilla.
Stir in apples and nuts.
Add egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
Bake for 45- 50 minutes.
Cool in pan.

For sauce:
In a small sauce pan combine brown sugar, whipping cream, and butter.
Cook and stir over medium heat until just bubbly and all th sugar is dissolved.
Cool slightly.
Drizzle over cake.
