    I made this for my annual winter party. I was amazed how much of it got eaten! My brother-in-law said he ate about 1/4 of it. I will definitely make this again. Simple and so easy!

    I found the cake to be "too" moist. The taste was okay but seemed to need to be baked longer. Possibly due to the apples making it more moist than a normal cake. I may try this again and bake longer.

    Have made this twice and everyone thinks it's made from scratch! Super moist! Haven't found a way to keep caramel from melting into the cake, but it still tastes great.
