To make the Apple Bundt Cake:

Prepare Filling: Beat first 3 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended and smooth. Add egg, flour, and vanilla; beat just until blended.

Prepare Batter: Preheat oven to 350oF [180oC. Bake pecans in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through. Stir together 3 cups flour and next 7 ingredients in a large bowl; stir in eggs and next 3 ingredients, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in apples and pecans.

Spoon 2/3 of the apple mixture into a greased and floured 14-cup Bundt cake pan. Spoon cream cheese filling over apple mixture, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges of the pan. Swirl filling through apple mixture using a paring knife. Spoon remaining apple mixture over cream cheese filling.

Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until a long wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack and cool completely (about 2 hours).

Prepare Frosting: Bring brown sugar, butter, and milk to a boil in a 2 quart [2litre] saucepan over medium heat, whisking constantly.

Boil for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Remove from heat.

Stir in vanilla. Gradually whisk in powdered sugar until smooth; stir gently for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture begins to cool and thickens slightly.

Pour immediately over cooled cake.
