    Sharon123's Note:

    Looking for a way to use up an abundance of apples, I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest and traced it to She gives credit to Examiner.Com, from Anne Marie Hurley, Livonia, Michigan. I took the liberty of tweeking this just a little. 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. It's easy, fast to make and incredibly delicious. This is a keeper!
