Your going to need:
2 cups & 2 tbsp flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter
1 cup water
1/2 cup shortening

1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 & 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups apples
6 tbsp milk
3 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/8 cup caramel sauce
 
In a large bowl mix flour, sugar and cinnamon and set to the side.

In a sauce pan combine butter, water and shortening and boil.

Now add flour mixture then buttermilk, baking soda and then eggs.

Stir well and then add vanilla and apples.

Stir together well.

Pour into a 15x13 pan.

Bake at 400 for 20 minutes.

Now lets mix the frosting!
