Autumn is here, and it is apple time! This recipe for apple cake brings a new flair for an apple dessert. I was introduced to this recipe when we visited in Eureka, Nevada and were invited for dinner at the home of Marian Byler. She served up this dessert and I had to have the recipe. The sauce was absolutely to die for!

It was a hit recently when I made it and served it to friends at a cookout.

The recipe is easy to make and it appears dry before you add the apples. Never fear – once those apples are added, the moisture seeps right through. Serve it with or without the sauce – and add a dollop of ice cream if you are not counting calories.
