Caramel-Glazed Apple Cake

My neighbor knows I like to cook. When I went to visit her the other day she had this recipe for me. She said that someone brought this cake to her and they could not stop eating it. I thanked her profusely for a tried and true recipe. I decided to make it Sunday night. I can not tell you how delicious this cake is. It is kind of dense - with a bread pudding consistency. I doubled the recipe for the caramel glaze. Serve it warm with real whipping cream.

Caramel Glaze

4. To prepare the glaze, melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in both sugars and salt; cook over medium-low heat for 2 minutes. Add cream and boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

5. Poke holes in the cake with a skewer or toothpick. Pour on the glaze. Serve warn or at room temperature. Top with whipped cream or ice cream if desired. Makes 12 servings. Printable recipe.
