Apples and fall just go together. To be truthful, I prefer an apple dessert over a pumpkin dessert any day. Though this pumpkin ice cream roll was delightful to say the least.
Apple cake with caramel drizzle is a one bowl deliciousness that is easy to make, has simple ingredients and can be made in a hurry. It also gets eaten in a hurry, but that is to be expected.
How To Make Apple cake with caramel drizzle
First, of course, you start with apples. You don’t have to peel them, but I like to and quite honestly, they have a much easier texture for chewing after you bake it.
Set the apples aside after you peel them. You can always sprinkle a bit of Fruit Fresh on the apples to keep them from turning brown.
Next cream the butter and sugar together then add the eggs and vanilla. I personally don’t ever measure vanilla. It is a dump and go method over here. However, never fear, I included the amount of vanilla needed for you in the recipe card below. ;-)
Now mix all the dry ingredients together and fold in the apples. Spread in a 9×13 cake pan and bake.
The caramel drizzle is simply Kraft caramels melted down to make a drizzle. I also added a little bit of almond milk in the pan with the caramels to keep the caramels from sticking and to make the drizzle more drizzly. Sure that is a word. ;-)
