Apple Walnut Cake


4 med. apples, peeled and sliced (or 3 large)
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups self rising flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Topping
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup chopped almonds

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spread apples in the bottom of a 9 x 13 x 2 pan sprayed with non-stick spray.  Sprinkle with 1/2 cup walnuts and cinnamon.  In a large bowl combine flour and both sugars.  Add eggs, oil, buttermilk and water.  Mix well.  Pour over apples.  (Batter should be slightly thicker than cake mix, if not, add a little water and mix until you have a thick, pourable mix.)  Bake 35-40 minutes or until browned and toothpick in center comes out clean.  While cake is still hot, poke holes into cake using a fork.  Set aside and made topping.

Topping - In a saucepan combine sugar and sour cream.  Cook over medium heat until it starts to boil.  Immediately add baking soda and remove from heat.  Pour over hot cake allowing to seep into the cake.  Great served with ice cream while still hot!
