½ teaspoon salt

1 ¼ cups Crisco oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups fresh apples, cut into small cubes

1 stick butter

1 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix dry ingredients in large bowl.  Add oil, eggs, and vanilla.  Mixture will be stiff.  Mix well.  Add apples and pecans.  Grease a 15X13X2 pan.  Spread mixture into pan.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake an additional 30 minutes.  During last 10 minutes, prepare sauce.

To make sauce:

Stir all ingredients together in small pot.  Cook over medium heat.  Stir constantly until thick an bubbly, about 5 minutes.  It needs to get a little thick.  Stir constantly so it doesn’t burn.  Pour over cake while hot.  Cut into squares.
