1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 eggs
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon (preferably Ceylon)
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
4 apples, peeled and diced into 1/2 inch pieces. (Granny Smith or Winesap apples)
1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped pecans
2 1/4 tsp vanilla
4 tbsp (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
Pinch salt
1/2 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 325. Butter and flour an 8 x 13 inch baking pan.
In a mixing bowl, beat both sugars and oil until very well blended. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and gradually add to the sugar and eggs, mixing just until well-blended. Stir in apples, pecans and vanilla and pour into pan.
Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours (begin to check after 50 minutes), until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan while preparing glaze.
In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add both sugars and salt. Stir until blended and cook over medium-low heat for 2 minutes. Stir in cream and boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
With a skewer or toothpick, poke holes all over the cake. Pour the glaze over the surface.
