Pumpkin Apple Cake with Maple Caramel Glaze

Dee Stillwell


Fall always makes me in the mood to bake with pumpkin and apples. I couldn't decide on which one I wanted to use...so decided to combine pumpkin and apples in this moist and delicious cake. I made a glaze for it also, altho it is moist enough and is packed with plenty of flavor, to serve without it. If not using a glaze, it would be yummy with a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Enjoy!
