Fresh Apple Cake with Carmel Sauce

As I'm adding my favorite recipes to our blog, I am reminded of old friends from different places we have lived and special things we did together. Funny how food can trigger memories we haven't thought about in a very long time. My friend Nancy served this at our book club when we lived in Chicago. I can't remember the book we discussed but I can vividly picture each of the wonderful women gathered together and I'm reminded of the great impact their examples have been in my life.

The apples this time of year are at their peak. Another great way to celebrate Fall!!

Mix together:
2 eggs well beaten
2 c. sugar
