Harvest Apple Cake

Harvest Apple Cake is a favorite in Cali's Kitchen!  Fall brings many wonderful fruits and vegetables to the Framer's Market and apples are one of the season's classics. 

This cake can be served plain (preferred at Cali's Kitchen), with cream cheese frosting, whipped cream or caramel sauce.  Delicious!
