I just loved this cake. It turned out to be so moist. And the flavors, well they just melded so well together. A perfect cake for fall. And, caramel? Well that doesn't hurt the recipe either!

Directions

1
Butter a standard sized fluted tube pan.
2
For caramel, in a saucepan on medium heat, heat sugar and corn syrup, stirring occasionally until it reaches an amber caramel color(10 minutes). Reduce heat to medium and add the 2 Tbsp butter and milk - this will splatter, BE CAREFUL. Stir until combined. Pour caramel about 1/2-3/4 inch deep in the tube pan. Reserve any other caramel for topping the cake. Let set for about 15 minutes.
3
Place sliced apples in a decorative pattern in the caramel at the bottom of the pan. Make sure to fill all cracks.
4
FOR CAKE: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time until evenly combined. Meanwhile, combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, powder, and soda and whisk in one bowl. Mix the yogurt, vanilla, and orange juice in another bowl.
5
Alternately add yogurt mixture and flour mixture in two batches to the butter, sugar, and eggs, finishing with the flour mixture.
6
Fold in chopped apples by hand. Spread the cake mixture in the pan over the apples and caramel. Bake at 350 degrees 45 minutes to one hour.
7
Cool completely. To unmold: set cake in bottom of a skillet with simmering water 3-5 minutes to soften caramel. Invert onto plate. Slice and serve with vanilla ice cream and remaining caramel sauce.

i have a quick question please......In your recipe for the carmel apples , ( first part of the recipe)....is the sugar just regular sugar or brown sugar?
user Kimberly Dillow dillowk - Nov 29, 2010
I just use regular sugar, but i have tried it using brown sugar and a touch of butter and it is actually really good...it makes for a richer caramel taste.
