In another bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
First, add half the sour cream, then half the flour mixture into the butter mixture, beating just until combined.

Stir in the apples.
Turn half the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle the surface evenly with half the brown sugar pecan mixture.
