This cake is so moist and delicious. We didn't even make the sauce . it was devoured in one day. The batter is very thick, but it was fine. Can't wait to make this again. It was a big hit.

What is even better on this cake is Lemon sauce. Just make up box of lemon pudding mix. Great on Apple Cake or Gingerbread.

Made this tonight for a Men's and Women's Fellowship at our Church. It was delicious and the caramel sauce added that special touch to it. Wasn't overly sweet and the cake was very moist. It will be a keeper and be made often.
