Apple Pecan Pound Cake

This Apple Pecan Pound Cake is loaded with apples, pecans and coconut. It’s moist and tender and full of flavor. A perfect cake for fall.

I’ve been saving this recipe for several months, so I could share it during apple season. Jean, a Barbara Bakes reader, emailed me this family favorite recipe in May. She said “Barbara, I have a wonderful cake recipe that I believe would be a BIG hit.  It is a winner.  I would like for you to try it and if you agree, post it.  It seems extra heavy with a lot of additions but I promise it will be wonderful.”

Jean’s good friend, Judith, gave her this recipe in 1966. “This is truly one of the best cake recipes that I have.  Moist and full of flavor.  It was my idea to use the Brandy flavoring and it really adds a special touch to this exceptional cake.”
