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.
