Carmel Apple Cake

I have been craving apples and have more ideas on the horizon so stay tuned.  This cake exceeded my expectations.  And the carmel sauce got rave reviews.  The cake did not make it more than a few hours and I was thinking of making another.

    Ingredients for cake
    3/4 cup + 1 tbsp of unbleached all purpose flour
    3/4 tsp baking powder
    1/8 tsp salt
    3 very large organic apples, peeled, cored and chopped into 1-inch chunks
    2 large eggs
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 tbsp Frangelico 
    1 tsp vanilla
    6 tbs  butter, melted 

    Ingredients for Carmel Sauce

    6 tbsp organic butter
    1 tsp frangelico
    1 cup sugar
    1/4 cup organic milk

    Directions;  This cake is a couple of steps but it really is worth the extra effort. 
    Pre-heat oven to 350.

    Peel, core and chop apples into cubes.

    sift flour, baking powder, and salt.  with a whisk mix in melted butter until crumbly.  

    In a separate bowl cream eggs and sugar until slightly frothy.  Add in Frangelico and vanilla.  Mix thoroughly.  
    Go back to your flour mixure and slowly start adding in you egg and sugar mixture, whisking your mixture as you go.  Continue adding  and mixing until creamy and complete.
    Add cubed apples and fold in with a soft spatula.  Place in a greased round 8 inch baking dish.  I one of my pie dishes for a great home cooked rustic look.
    Place in oven and let cook for 50 to 60 minutes until and toothpick comes out clean and the  top of cake is golden.  

    While cake is baking make your carmel sauce.

    Place sugar in a sauce pan on med to high head.  Using a wire whisk keep sugar moving so that is melts evenly.  Once all sugar is melted and amber in color.  Add butter.  Once butter is melted and fully incorporated.  remove form heat. Add Frangelico let cool a little and add in the milk this just thins the sauce out so that it drizzles better.  Once finished sauce can be refrigerated and warmed when putting over the cake.  
    This cake is great warm and delicious  alone or with ice cream.  You will have enough sauce to top some ice cream.
