Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Sift together 2 cups flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream 2 cups sugar and 1 cup margarine until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring and 2 tablespoons water. Beat in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated. Finally, stir in chopped apples and pecans.
  3. Pour batter into prepared 9x13 inch pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
  4. To make the Rum Sauce: In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup water and 1/2 cup margarine. Bring to a boil. Mix 1 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons flour and 1/8 teaspoon salt and stir into the saucepan. Bring sauce to a boil, stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon butter flavoring and 2 teaspoons rum flavoring. Pour sauce over the cake and serve.

I dared to exchange the rum flavoring for the real thing, medium priced golden rum. It was delish! I scaled it down to 8 servings too, cause I wanted to share with family and friends, and not have too much left over, in case I got midnight cravings. heehee

Oh My Goodness this is so good. I didn't have any rum flavoring or butter flavoring so I used 1/2 c real butter and 1/2 cup margarine and 2+ tsp real rum for sauce. This sauce is really good over vanilla ice cream too. I used Fuji Apples and pecans. YUMMO. It did take another 10 minutes to cook and I used a Pyrex dish so I was surprised it took longer.

Oh my goodness! I substituted walnuts for the pecans and didn't use the butter flavoring... but oh, my... what a wonderful thing! At first I was a bit nervous because the batter was quite stiff - more like a dough than a batter. My company LOVED this. My daughter insisted that folks try it without the sauce (or whip cream!) stating it was just as yummy without. She was right! Thanks for a great recipe!
