Now that fall is finally here, the blogosphere is buzzing with heartwarming recipes like this fresh apple cake with salted caramel fondue from the incomparable food blog Tara Cooks. Cook has been a passionate cook for years, and a while ago she heeded her husband's advice and launched her own food blog. Since then, her blog has evolved into a treasure trove of simple family pleasing meals.
The fresh apple cake is an old family favorite made by the seemingly legendary Aunt Polly. The salted caramel fondue is enough to make you weak in the knees. I am simply bowled over by the possibilities that this simple sauce opens up. Anything with liquified caramels and miniature marshmallows couldn't possibly be bad; evil maybe, but totally worth it. Only one question remains: what would a shot of whiskey do to this lush sauce? This may require some in-depth analysis.
