Johnny Appleseed Cake With Caramel Sauce



Ingredients:

Cake:

2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large, tart cooking apples, cored and cut into 1/2" pieces (about 2 1/2 cups)
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
whipped topping for garnish (optional)

Caramel Sauce:


1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions


For the cake

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large mixing bowl; beat at low speed for 1 to 2 minutes until well mixed. Add the oil, eggs, and vanilla; beat at medium speed for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth. Stir in the apples and walnuts by hand. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 13 x 9 inch cake pan. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly toughed in the center. Cool on a wire rack.

For the sauce


Combine the brown sugar, cream, and butter in a 1 quart saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until the brown sugar dissolves. Stir in the vanilla. Drizzle the sauce over cake slices to serve. Garnish with whipped topping, if desired
