Gooey Apple Sorghum Cake

This recipe is from a 16 page, free recipe book WalMart put out before Christmas a few years ago. We love this recipe… it’s one of my 3 year old’s most often requested desserts! It calls for a caramel sauce as the topping, but I think the result is more like a bar dessert than a cake, and it is delicious without the sauce… very moist and delicious warm or cooled.
