Caramel-Glazed Apple Cake Recipe

Caramel-Glazed Apple Cake Recipe

MY Mother made this family favorite from scratch and it was the most requested birthday cake. We could hardly wait for apple harvest to begin, because we kids knew what would be baking in the oven. The tempting aroma brought us right into the kitchen.
