Gooey Sorghum Apple Cake

From Miami County Locally Grown

<p>This recipe is from a 16 page, free recipe book WalMart put out before Christmas a few years ago. 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 sauceā€¦ very moist and delicious warm or cooled.</p>
