    Annacia's Note:

    Popular in French Canadian regions of Canada. In this indulgent cake, apples are caramelized before being baked in buttery batter. It has an update with salted caramel sauce that lets guests indulge even further. The caramel sauce takes about 12 mins to make. Times shown below are for the cake.
