Preheat oven to 325°


1 Tablespoon water
1 Tablespoon butter
4 cups apples, cored, peeled, chopped
1 1/2 cup brown sugar OR sucanat
1 Tablespoon cornstarch

1 stick butter

1 cup sugar OR sucanat
1 cup GF Healthy Flour Blend
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk

Combine brown sugar and cornstarch together add to medium sized saucepan.  Over medium heat cook the brown sugar/cornstarch with water, butter and apples.  Cook until the apples are softened and the caramel thickened a bit.

While this is cooking melt the stick of butter in a 9 X 13 baking dish in the preheated oven.  About 5 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

In a large bowl combine sugar, flour, baking powder, salt.  Stir to combine.  Add the egg, milk and vanilla.  Mix well.  I just use a fork for this.

Pour the cake batter into the melted butter (remember that the pan is hot!).  Top with the cooked caramel apples.

Bake for 40-50 minutes.  When checking the doneness make sure you get the cake and not the apple mixture.
