Apple Bundt Cake with Caramel Frosting

The leaves are changing outside where I live and it is seriously my favorite site. Fall is gorgeous. Along with the breathtaking scenery comes incredible food and aromas.

Caramel and apple happen to be one of my favorite fall flavor combos. This cake was adapted from a Taste of Home recipe and is absolutely fantastic. The frosting is perfection and I love the subtle hint of apple.

This cake makes for a beautiful presentation and delicious fall treat!
