Caramel Apple Cake

I'm trying out new recipes for our church's fall fest this Saturday, were having a pie auction to raise money for the hungry, and since it's also my youngest son's 25th birthday, I made this caramel apple cake for him, he loves my caramel apple pie but I think this is his new favorite. It was very moist and full of caramel flavor. I searched for recipes on the Internet and ended up rearranging two recipes into one and came up with my version, which was a hit! Both recipes said it would be even better the second day so I'm looking forward to sharing the last piece with hubby tonight.

Caramel Apple Cake
1 yellow cake mix
1 small box french vanilla pudding
1 c. water
4 eggs
1/3 c. oil
3 apples, peeled and chopped fine
1 tsp. vanilla ( used my homemade stash)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour and 10 in. bundt pan. Beat first 5 ingredients in bowl on low speed till blended well. Beat on high for another minute. Stir in apples. I cut them up then ran them through my food processor. Pour in greased pan and bake for 50-60 min. till toothpick comes out clean. Cool cake. Remove from pan and place on plate. Drizzle caramel ice cream topping all over the top, I used almost the whole jar, depending on your taste. Enjoy!

Needless to say, I'll be making one of these cakes for the pie auction along with a few pies and my blueberry bread pudding. I really enjoy baking and so glad I don't eat everything I bake, I'd be huge! But I love to get creative in the kitchen and it warms the house up with scents of fall and winter. Baking is good, oh soo good therapy!
