Caramel Apple Poke Cake

I was going through my recipes the other day and saw this cake recipe that I haven't made in a long time. It is filled with warm spices and so moist it is almost like a pudding cake. This is a very easy recipe to put together and is great to have on hand when your friends are stopping over for cake and coffee after the game. I use fresh apples in this recipe giving it a very rich consistency with the spice cake, caramel and little bites of apple, yes it is delicious!

Miz Helen's Kitchen
Ingredients
1 (15 1/4 ounce) box Spice Cake Mix
3 eggs
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 cups red delicious apple, chopped small, peeling on
3/4 cup caramel sauce
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
Directions
Prepare the cake batter according to package directions.
Fold in the fresh apples
Pour into a  9X13 baking dish and spray with a baking oil and flour.
Bake according to box directions, or until the cake will test clean in the center.
Remove from the oven
Let cool on a cooling rack, then poke the holes in the cake with the end of a wooden spoon. If you want it smaller use a fork.
Drizzle the caramel sauce over the holes and the top of the cake.
Refrigerate the cake for at least one hour before frosting.
Butter Cream Frosting
In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer, mix the butter, brown sugar, apple pie spice and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Gradually add the powdered sugar and the milk. Mix until it reaches the consistency that you want for your cake. If you want it thicker add more powdered sugar, if you want it thinner then add more milk a little at a time. I like to make it a little thinner then some of the frosting goes in the holes. 
Refrigerate before and after serving.
