Salted Caramel Apple Cake Recipe
“I’ve always loved apple picking in the fall. It’s been a tradition at our house for as long as I can remember. Nothing better than biting into a crisp orchard-fresh apple straight off the tree. And there are so many yummy ways to use fresh apples. Apple crisp, apple pie and applesauce come to mind. In our house growing up, apples on a stick drizzled with homemade salted caramel were always a favorite.
This easy scratch-made Salted Caramel Apple Cake combines fresh orchard apples with homemade salted caramel and reminds me of those delicious caramel apples I loved. But so much easier to eat! This golden apple cake is dense and moist, packed with chunks of fresh apple and pecans. (Use walnuts if you like.)
The easy homemade salted caramel is rich and thick, and cascades down the top and sides of the cake. The salted caramel is made on the stovetop in minutes with all real ingredients: butter, sugar, vanilla, cream and sea salt.
You’ll be amazed how easy it is to bake this scrumptious cake. It comes together in one bowl and bakes up beautifully golden in about an hour. Just before serving, ladle on the warm salted caramel. If you love fresh apples and salted caramel, you’ll love this Salted Caramel Apple Cake!”
