Cream the butter and brown sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add the pumpkin, apples, and cheddar and mix until smooth. Sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices and mix until combined. Fold in the pecans.

Bake for 55-60 minutes or until golden brown and a cake tester comes clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes and then remove from the pan and let finish cooling on the wire rack.
