Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 20 or 23cm round cake tin or pie dish with the 15g butter. Or, if using a cast iron frying pan (20 to 23cm), place it into the oven to preheat and reserve the 15g butter for later.
Beat together the flour, caster sugar, dark brown soft sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in a bowl; set aside.
Beat together the eggs, vanilla extract and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Toss the apples and pecans in the flour mixture, then stir into the egg mixture until combined.
If baking in a regular tin, tip the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the top. If using a cast iron frying pan, remove the hot pan from the oven and add the 15g butter, swirling to coat the pan, then add the blondie mixture.
Bake until the sides are dry and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Cool in the tin or frying pan 20 minutes before removing and slicing.
