For the Cake
  • 1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 medium apples , diced very small (2 cups)
For the Maple Glaze
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9-inch baking dish with parchment paper, letting the ends extend up the sides.

  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the brown sugar, melted butter, syrup, and vanilla until blended.

  3. Add in eggs. Then add in the flour, salt, and baking soda.

  4. Fold in the apples (batter will be thick.)

  5. Transfer batter to the prepared pan.

  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean.

  7. Make the glaze: in a small saucepan melt the butter over medium; stir in the syrup and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium, stirring constantly until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the pecans, if using. Pour glaze over the warm cake.

  8. Cool completely in pan. Cut into squares and enjoy!
