Apple Cake with Caramel Sauce

If you want a crowd pleaser for the fall, then take my word for it. THIS IS IT! I made it again last night for my ladies' bible study group. Serve it warm and just watch the smiles.




Cake:

¾ c. butter
2 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 c. all purpose flour
2 t. ground cinnamon
2 t. baking soda
½ t. ground nutmeg
½ t. salt
4 cups finely chopped apples (I used Granny Smith.)
1 t. vanilla

Sauce:

¾ c. butter
¾ c. granulated sugar
¾ c.  packed brown sugar
¾ c. heavy cream
1 ½  t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 cake pan.

Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in eggs one at a time. Sift together dry ingredients and add to egg mixture alternately with apples. Stir in vanilla. Pour into greased pan and bake for 40-50 minutes.

Cool in pan for 5 minutes before cutting into squares.

Sauce: Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Immediately remove from heat and spoon over individual servings of warm cake.

YUM YUM!!!
