This is a family favorite....apple mabon cake. The recipe was given to me by a Norwegian witch many years ago.
Cut an assortment of apples into small dice. You need 4 cups.
In your mixer bowl, add 2 cups of white sugar and 3 eggs. Whisk until blended.
Add 1 tsp. of baking soda and 1 tsp. of salt.
Add 2 tsp. of vanilla. I make mine and keep it in this glass skull.
Add 1 cup of melted butter.
Change to your paddle and mix in 3 cups of flour.
Add the 4 cups of diced apple.
Place it in a greased 9 X 13 pan. Bake it at 325 degrees for an hour or until golden and a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.
During the last 10 minutes of baking time, melt 2 sticks of butter in a pan. Add 1 cup of dark brown sugar and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Cook until it comes to a boil and remove from the heat. Stir in 2 tsp. of vanilla extract.
The cake just out of the oven.
Prick it all over with a skewer.
Pour the hot liquid over the top of the cake. Let it sit until the liquid is absorbed.
I like to chill the cake before slicing. This is dense, moist and caramel-y!
