Fresh Apple Cake with Carmel Glaze

Last night I made this cake, it was AMAZING! I'm sure it was created for a fall recipe (I could easily pair it with a nice bowl of hot soup & homemade bread and have an excellent meal!), but it was also a wonderful summer treat...especially with the scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

1/4 C. Cinnamon-Sugar Mix
4 Apples, chopped small
3 Eggs
1 C. Vegetable Oil
2 C. Flour
2 C. Sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon

2 Tbsp. Butter
1/2 C. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a bundt or tube pan & coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture. (I didn't have a these pans, so I used a square cake pan and it turned out great)
Mix apples, eggs & oil with an electric mixer (apples will stay in tact). Add Flour, sugar, baking soda & cinnamon - mix well.
Pour into pan & bake about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (mine was 1 hour exactly)
Allow cake to rest in pain for about 10 minutes; then invert onto a cake plate.
Prepare Glaze: combine butter, brown sugar & milk in a saucepan. Bring to boil and cook for 1 minute. Pour over cake.
Allow to cook before serving.

This cake isn't beautiful when it's baked in a square pan - I'm sure it's pretty in a bundt pan, but it tastes AMAZING. Enjoy!!
