Inspired by a Swiss Colony cake from years ago, this is actually my husband's invention. He comes up with the ideas and I turn them into reality in the kitchen. :)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What better way to enjoy fall with three classic fall flavors - cinnamon, apple, and caramel. Combined they make one flavorful and delicious cake. Just the apple cinnamon cake alone is delicious, but the addition of caramel makes it extra special. The cake is moist and has a gooey inside. This easy dessert will fill your kitchen with the aroma of the season.
