I’ve been making a cake similar to this for about thirty years. But I’ve gotta tell you, I like this one better. What makes this cake killer is the caramel frosting you make and pour over the cake. Make the cake let it cool , make the caramel sauce and pour the hot caramel sauce over the cake. Uh huh, gooey delicious caramel over a moist apple filled cake. *Sigh* You know you need this kids. It’s easy, fast to make and incredibly delicious. This is a keeper! Enjoy!

- 2 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 ½ tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 3 cups apples, peeled and diced

- ½ cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Cake: In a large mixing bowl, beat together the oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add the flour, salt, and baking soda. Beat together until well-incorporated. Stir in the apples.
Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 55 – 60 minutes. Cool completely before adding the topping.
