WOWZA! Caramel Applesauce Cake...sticky goodness...

Had to share this...oh YUMMO...made it with home-canned chunky applesauce (you can use fresh apples), and it is DIVINE!
CARAMEL APPLESAUCE CAKE >>INGREDIENTS: *3 eggs *1 cup sugar *1 cup brown sugar *1/2 cup vegetable oil *2 teaspoons vanilla extract *3 cups all-purpose flour *1 teaspoon salt *1 tsp. cinnamon *1 teaspoon baking soda *5 cups home-made applesauce (or 4 cups peeled/chopped apples + 1 cup applesauce) *1 cup coarsely chopped pecans TOPPING: *1/2 cup butter or margarine *1/4 cup milk *1 cup packed brown sugar *Pinch salt >>DIRECTIONS: In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy; gradually add sugar. Blend in oil and vanilla. Combine flour, salt and baking soda; add to egg mixture. Stir in applesauce and pecans. Pour into a greased 10-in. tube pan; bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the cake tests done. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake to a serving platter. For topping, combine all topping ingredients in a saucepan; boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Slowly pour over warm cake (some topping will run down onto the serving plate.) ************************************************** >>TIP>> The caramel sauce is tremendous. I suggest pouring about 1/2 of it over the warm cake (You can poke a few holes in the cake beforehand.) and then, if you're serving it right away, drizzle the remainder over each slice. Wowza! To drool for!
