Fresh Apple Cake

This cake is a favorite. I mean really a favorite. Every single time we make this for the sideboard, guests ask for the recipe. It is full of sweet or tart apples and covered in this incredible caramel glaze. Folks go nuts. Serve this for Thanksgiving dinner or just for a nice fall snack. The batter will be really thick but don’t let that concern you. The apples release their juices during baking and add the needed liquid. Enjoy!
