6 Apples of any variety

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1.5 teaspoons ground cloves

1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Caramel Sauce:

1 cup heavy whipping cream

.5 cup brown sugar

.5 cup granulated sugar

  3. Set a glass bowl over the saucepan (or use a double boiler) and simmer the sauce, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour.

  4. Pour into a jar. You can refrigerate this for up to two weeks.


Making the Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fereheight.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugar.

  6. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Add to the wet ingredients and mix.

  7. Bake in a greased 9x13 inch pan for 40-50 min, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
