Pairs Well With
I was looking through some of my "to try recipes" that I have been bookmarking. I saw this Caramel Apple Pudding Cake and decided to give it a try. Since I did not have store bought caramel sauce I made it myself. The recipe will follow the cake recipe. The cake recipe came from Better Homes & Gardens. The Cake was really good. I will definitely make it again.
