    I love apple cake and this one looks not only delicious, but easy to make. I also love when you can take a cake mix and make a wonderful dessert and everyone thinks it took all day to make. The caramel bits in this would be perfect. I could use a piece of this cake right now with a cup of coffee.

    Thanks for sharing!
