When apple season comes in I usually go to the orchard and get lots of apples to make delicious apple recipes. This one I especially enjoy. It consist of fresh apples, chopped nuts and a divine caramel sauce which makes this cake.

I have had this cake recipe for such a long time. I believe I got it from Betty Crocker recipes. It is moist and delicious for those of you that like apples.
