The most Delicious Apple Cake EVER!!!

I'm joining in with Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality and her Recipe Party today.....this is seriously the best ever Apple Cake I've ever tasted....and I'm sure you'll find some other best ever recipes over there as well......Go check it out!

Apple Cake with Caramel Sauce

3/4 c. butter
2 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 c. all purpose flour
2 t. ground cinnamon
2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. ground nutmeg
1/2 t. salt
4 cups peeled, finely chopped apples (Granny Smith or McIntosh)
1 t. vanilla

3/4 c. butter
3/4 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 c. heavy cream
1 1/2 t. vanilla extract

Bake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 inch cake pan. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in eggs one at a time. Sift together dry ingredients and add to egg mixture alternately with apples. Stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. (find something distracting to do while it bakes or the aroma will drive you mad!! ;)
Cool in pan for 5 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve warm......oh yes by all means!

Sauce: Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Immediately remove from heat and spoon over individual servings of warm cake.

Oh wow!! That sounds WONDERFUL!! And, it sounds like just the thing I need to make with my brand new KA Standmixer. Yep, finally got one. Never bought one before because I didn't have a place to keep it. I made a nice spot in my brand new pantry just for it and it's attachments though!!

Mmmm. . . I love apple cake. It's a funny thing: I'm not that big a fan of apple pie. I think it's fine, but I can take it or leave it. Apple cake, though--now that's a different story. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
