Caramel Apple Coffee Cake

I love it when I can make a cake in one pan, no frosting required. This cake is great as an after dinner dessert or will make a nice addition to your Easter brunch table. You can make your own caramel (directions below) but if you're short on time or just feeling lazy, pick up a bottle of caramel topping in the ice-cream aisle and use that instead. It will taste just as delicious.
