Recipe by Kelley Maillard
I got this recipe from my French mother-in-law, although where she got it, I do not know. Anyway, I have translated the recipe and converted the measurments to US standard. I hope you all enjoy this yummy French cake as much as my family and I do!

This cake is delicious! I couldn't wait to let it cool down completely and it tasted wonderful still warm from the oven. The apple chunks were warm and mushy and sweet. Note: It was a little tricky to get the caramel spread in the pan (it hardens very quickly) - mine hardens too quickly to get it spread evenly, so I stuck the pan into the warm oven while I peeled the apples. The carmel softened up again and I was able to swirl it around the pan.
- 3 nice tart apples
- 15 sugar cubes
