Caramel Apple Bundt Cake

(originally made 4/2011)

Tonight is the annual auction at my sister's school.   Part of the event is a cake walk/auction, and every year I provide 4 cakes.     Donated cakes cannot require refrigeration, and Aveena had posted her awesome picture and link to her blog with this recipe and I know it will be a huge hit.   Due to time constraints I grated the apples on a large hole grater and used caramel ice cream topping.    Like Aveena's, the first layer of caramel soaked right in, and I sent the remainder of the bottle home with my sister to add to the cake and then pop it in the freezer to set it quickly.    The test cupcake was delicious and I was sorry to see this cake leave the house!     Thank you so much Aveena for sharing your review !

Unfortunately, the only pic I got of the cake was with the glaze soaked in and with the other cakes.
