  1. thought this was pretty good, but next time i will make it with peach pie filling instead of the apple. i'm not a huge apple pie fan, so i think i will really like the peach. also, i didn't want to go to the trouble of cutting this cake into individual pieces to top with the caramel sauce, so i simply sliced the cake in the cake pan and poured the sauce all over the cake. it soaked down into the pieces because of the cuts and was super gooey and yummy on top! we also ate ours with a caramel swirl ice cream for even more sweetness & it was awesome!
  2. Another great recipe. Instead of using the sauce and topping I used a Caribben Banana Carmel Sauce that I bought at a culinary store and put about a half a cup on top of the cake after it cooled.
