Newest Video Recipe - Apple Pecan Yeast Cake

This Apple Pecan Yeast Cake is an Upside Down Cake. It starts with a layer of buttery toasted pecans. Underneath is a sprinkling of cinnamon laced brown sugar that is drizzled with honey. Then comes a layer of thinly sliced apples. All this covers a deliciously soft and fluffy cake that is made with yeast. It is reminiscent of a sticky bun, but a whole lot easier to make. Serve it warm from the oven, at room temperature, or even cold. This is sure to become a family favorite.

This cake recipe is unique in that it gets its rise, not from baking powder, but from yeast. This gives the cake that wonderful bread flavor and yet the texture is soft and fluffy. That is because we don't knead the dough like you would with most breads. All the cake ingredients are simply mixed together until smooth, which takes under one minute. This recipe is one I adapted from Beatrice Ojakangas' cookbook "The Great Holiday Baking Book". I love this book as it contains about 250 excellent recipes for the holidays. Actually I use this cookbook year round. If you aren't familiar with Beatrice Ojakangas, she has published 29 cookbooks. I own several. All of her recipes are very well written and explained and I've never tried one of her recipes that I haven't liked.

A few notes on ingredients. I have used active dry yeast in this recipe. You could use an equal amount of rapid rise yeast if you like. Just keep in mind that the rising time will be shorter. You could also use instant yeast, SAF red or gold. You would need to use 2 teaspoons, about 7 grams. While I didn't activate the active dry yeast in the liquid before adding it to the dough, you could do that if you like. Just heat the milk to lukewarm, stir in the yeast, and let sit about 5 to 10 minutes, or until foamy before adding to the batter.

Stay safe and let's get baking!!
