Fall starts tomorrow. This time of year always makes me think of falling leaves, turkey and APPLES! Living near the Annapolis Valley, it’s a tradition to head there and stock up on lots and lots of apples for baking.
So I thought I’d share with you a recipe that is a favourite in our family. My mom makes it best but even I can pull it off if needed.
The sauce makes the recipe! It has a caramel like taste and is the perfect sweetness to compliment the cake. Here you go. We always make it for Thanksgiving but it’s great all year ’round! Enjoy!
