  5. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter, then pour on the bottom of 9x13" springform pan.
  6. Sprinkle brown sugar around the bottom and spread out. Add crumbled bacon evenly and place pineapple rings on top.
  7. Pour cake mix on top and put in the oven at 325 degrees until cake is done and knife comes out clean.
  8. Pour out bacon grease but leave a coating in the pan, then on low medium heat add 2 tablespoons of butter, sprinkle brown sugar, a couple dashes of cinnamon, and thinly sliced apple into the pan.
  9. Once apples are cooked through, add apples to the caramel sauce.
  10. Delicately turn the cake over, then pour the glaze over the top and enjoy.
