Caramel Apple Cake

I am so excited for this weeks challenge. We were told to use apples and caramel. A couple of days later I saw a recipe for Caramel Apple Cupcakes. I am so excited to show you this recipe. I am not so excited to tell you that my husband was not home and I had to peel the apples myself. I am so spoiled. The reason I need him is because I always do something silly like spray the apple juice in my eye.

• 1 box yellow cake mix
• 3 medium apples ( granny smith) peeled & shredded
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 1 tablespoon cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
• 11 ounce bag of caramel bits
• 2 tablespoons heavy cream
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix cake mix according to directions on box. Then add the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bake according to box. I did realize this needed about 10 minutes longer to cook than the box said. Check it to see how your oven cooks it. Pull out of oven and let stand.
Pour the caramel bits and heavy cream and vanilla in a saucepan over low heat and melt together. Make sure you are constantly stirring. As soon as it is melted together pour over cake. Let stand about ten minutes before serving.
This is not my recipe. I found it on Mrs. Happy Homemaker. She made it into cupcakes. Please stop by and tell her I sent you. Her pictures look amazing and I am hoping to make them into cupcakes soon.
