  • 4 Eggs
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsps vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups Granny Smith apples, approximately 3-4 apples, peeled, chopped in small pieces

Caramel Glaze

  • 3/4 cups butter 1 1/2 sticks
  • 1 cup light brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°
