This cake was very average. I really wanted to like this cake and I didn't think you could go wrong with apples and caramel but this recipe proved that it is possible. Even with the adjustments made based on other reviewers (i.e. 1 cup sour cream and 2.5 apples), it was very dry and dense and the crust was very hard and chewy (perhaps the flour should be cut down to 2 cups?) This wasn't horrible, but not worth the calories. I will not make this again as there are better recipes out there (i.e the Butter Rum Glazed Applesauce cake on this site, or the Apple Spice Cake on marthastewart.com). Regarding the sauce, I will add the brandy as an ingredient to the caramel sauce recipe from Martha Stewart. This is a great basic sauce to use on pancakes, baked apples, or perhaps on the Pear Cake recipe from this site.
