Raw Apple Cake with Warm Caramel Sauce

Understand that this Raw Apple Cake Recipe contains some very warm memories for me- my Great Aunt Mary didn't have children, and did not like children, and did not let us touch anything in her house, but she made amazing apple cake.

Here's an old recipe I found for this excellent, good, basic cake...  Note the baking times.  Ah, for the days of non-exact cooking.  (Just bake it for 35-45 minutes- checking after 35.  Take it out when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs attached.)

I don't know what she used, but if I were you, I'd use 2 apples for one batch-  one Granny Smith, and one sweeter apple, here I used a Fuji.

And then, there is the warm caramel sauce.  Find a recipe online or use a favorite- it's simple, don't buy a jar of caramel- You can do it!  It's just cream, butter, brown sugar, maybe a little salt, and a dash of this or that.

Apple season is nearly here in South Dakota.... this cake is perfect for a spur of the moment Saturday afternoon of baking, and it makes good muffins too.

It's very hard to screw this up.  Let me know if you try it.
