Apple Cake

This is the cake that I was supposed to take to a luncheon and forgot about it until an hour before it was supposed to be there. I couldn't believe how fast it went together. It has a caramel sauce that goes over it that is fabulous, but the cake is delicious by itself or with a little whipping cream.

Apple Cake
4 C. grated apples
2 C. sugar
1/2 C. oil
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
2 C. flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
Mix by hand - apples, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Sift together flour and dry ingredients then add to apple mixture. Bake in 9x13 pan at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Caramel Sauce:
1 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. corn syrup
1/4 C. butter
1/2 C. evaporated milk
Cook over low heat (do not boil!) until thick. Serve over apple cake.
