Warm Caramel Apple Cake

* 1/2 cup butter or margarine
* 1/4 cup whipping cream
* 1 cup packed brown sugar
* 2 large cooking apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
* 1 box yellow cake mix
* 1 1/4 cups water
* 1/3 cup vegetable oil
* 3 eggs
* 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice


1. Heat oven to 350°F. In 1-quart heavy saucepan, cook butter, whipping cream and brown sugar over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until butter is melted. Pour into 13x9-inch pan. Top with sliced apples.
2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs and apple pie spice with electric mixer on low speed until moistened, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Carefully spoon batter over apple mixture.
3. Bake 40 - 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Loosen sides of cake from pan. Place heatproof serving platter upside down on pan; carefully turn platter and pan over. Let pan remain over cake about 1 minute so caramel can drizzle over cake. Remove pan.
4. Serve and enjoy!!!

This cake is best enjoyed the day it is made, though it still tastes great for a few days after. Keep it covered and it won't dry out.
