Ingredients:

(3) cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp salt
1 ½ cups vegetable oil
2 cups white sugar
(4) eggs
(3) cups apples – peeled, cored and shredded
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup raisins
½ cup white sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
½ cup half-and-half cream
¼ tsp salt
½ cup butter softened
1 cup chopped pecans
¼ tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to about 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch Bundt pan. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, allspice, and a tsp of salt.

2. In a large bowl, add and mix vegetable oil, 2 cups of sugar, eggs, apples, a cup of pecans, and raisins. Add and mix flour mixture into the wet ingredients, and pour the batter into the prepared Bundt pan.

3. Bake it for 70 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with moist crumbs in the preheated oven. In the pan, cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

4. For the glaze: In a saucepan, mix 1/2 c of white sugar, the brown sugar, half and half, and 1/4 tsp of salt. Bring it to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and boil for 5 to 10 minutes until the mixture thickens to a syrup, stirring constantly. A candy thermometer will read 220 degrees F (105 degrees C). At that point, stir in butter, a cup of pecans, and vanilla extract, continue to cook and stir until it (the syrup) reaches 234 degrees F (110 degrees C). Let the glaze cool for 5 minutes, then spread the warm glaze over the cake.
