How to make it

  • CAKE:
  • Cream butter & sugar until light and fluffly
  • Add eggs
  • Beat well
  • Sift together: flour, salt, soda and cinamon
  • Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Beat well.
  • Stir in apples and nuts
  • Pour into greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes
  • CARAMEL ICING:
  • Bring sugar, evaporated milk and margarine to boil
  • Cook 6 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly
  • Remove from heat
  • Add marshmallows
  • Beat to spreading consistency
  • Spread fast on cake, or turn into buttered dish for fudge.
  • ** Mom made this in her old stainless copper bottomed saucepan (the large one), and beat with her wooden handled metal spoon. Her arm would get really tired, and Dad would have to take over, So it takes several minutes, don't give up!**

    OMG-People, this cake is incredible!! I made this cake, and it won rave reviews from everyone's lips that it passed. This was the first time I have ever made something for the first time,and taken it somewhere before knowing what it would taste like. This recipe certainly delivered,and went above and beyond on taste test, and is so moist. I think the cake taste the best room temp, not eaten cold from the 'fridge. You can't appreciate the moistness of this cake if it is cold. The caramel icing is a true labor of Love, and your arm will be tired, but it is truly worth it in the end for the result you recieve. The icing is wonderful!! I will definately make this cake from now on, there's no way I can't since people have tasted it. I appreciate a "Great" recipe.Thank You. Peace be to You.

    My aunt used to make this or a very similar cake for my birthday every year when I was young. I loved it and lost the recipe when I moved one time. So happy to find it again!
