Caramel Apple Cake

by KellysCravings on October 31st, 2017

Fall! I love when the weather turns cool and crisp. And I love all the flavors of fall. I’ve never been a huge fan of pie, unless it’s chocolate…with a chocolate crust (French Silk Pie). In the fall, lots of people love Apple Pie or Pumpkin Pie. Yeah, they’re ok. I prefer my grandpa’s Apple Betty or this Caramel Apple Cake recipe my mom found in the Taste of Home magazine back in 1996. This is an apple cake with a caramel icing, yep…I love the fall flavors in this cake.
