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!
