   Can you taste a slice of this AMAZING cake filled with chunks of tart apple wrapped in a moist tender cake?  Drizzle with a warm sweet caramel sauce over the top – and there you have food for angels.

1 pkg. (4-serving size) Jell-O Vanilla or French vanilla flavor instant pudding & pie filling – leave DRY, do NOT prepare with liquid

4 Granny smith apples, peeled and coarsely chopped

    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!
