Apple Cake with Salted Caramel Sauce


I apologize in advance for this cake, you won’t be able to stop eating it.  And no, just because it has apples in it, that does not mean its healthy.  The hardest part about this recipe is waiting so long for it to bake and cool.  Other than that, its pretty foolproof.  Enjoy!


2 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

1/2 cup orange juice

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 stick butter

1/2 cup Buttermilk

1 teaspoon Vanilla

1/4 teaspoon baking soda


Caramel Sauce

1/2 stick butter

1/2 cup Buttermilk
