Not too shabby for a yellow cake mix, which generally has an obnoxious artificial taste. I tried to work around that in advance by substituting apple juice for the water, adding a teaspoon of caramel flavoring and, as I always do with yellow cake mixes, a teaspoon of vanilla. I was concerned about the cake being too moist and falling because I used a pudding-included cake mix, but it turned out not to be a problem. The cake is nice and moist, with pleasant little chunks of apple, not adulterated with a bunch of pie spices or cinnamon, which I liked. Knowing the glaze just might soak into the cake, which I did not want, I reduced the amount of milk considerably, only using 1 T. (I used half and half) rather than the 3 T. called for. It worked just as I hoped it would, though I found I didn't need the 10 minutes sitting time as it started to thicken before that. To finish the cake, I topped it with chopped Heath Bars which made for a pretty presentation (chopped, toasted walnuts or pecans would have been good too). Nice autumn cake that was very simple and quick to make from start to finish.

This tasted like a typical cake mix recipe. It made for a nice presentation though.

This cake is absolutely AMAZING! It is so moist and the tart apples with the caramels are just great. I've made this one several times and it is a great fall/Thanksgiving/Christmas dessert.
