"Caramel Apple Cake" from MixingBowl.com. (Jan 2010)

Recipe Review..."Caramel Apple Cake" from the MixingBowl.com

I had the day off so I decided to make something new.  I have a magazine I really enjoy its called "Mixing Bowl".  I have the baking issue.  I thought yum the Caramel Apple Cake looks great so why not give it a try?  This is a recipe by Barbarajf... at the mixing bowl web site.  I gathered my ingredients....

 I could peel the apples on
my new Christmas cutting board.
I tried but with a dull knife it was
very slow going....
So I pulled out the apple peeler.
As you can see I have forgotten
how to use it.  I looked at if for a
few seconds and then the "Ah-Ha
moment"....
Thats better:-)
A few seconds later the apples were peeled and diced.
Came out looking pretty good...
Mine never looks exactly like the picture.
Oh well, I was happy anyway.
