Caramel Apple Cake from Gooseberry Patch’s The Havest Table

O My goodness! Yummy caramely apple-y goodness!   Super duper easy.  Super duper delicious.  And made in my last 9 x 13 from Chinet’s NEW Disposable Bakeware.  Got to get more of it! And since I used the Chinet bakeware, I skipped the greasing and flour step.

I wondered when I started this recipe how it would turn out.  Just didn’t seem like enough liquid to me.  But it was perfect.  Sort of the consistency of my mama’s fresh apple cake.  The recipe, as you will see calls for a box of yellow cake mix.  Well I wanted to be able to enjoy it so I made it with a box of gluten free yellow cake mix which is 3 1/2 ounces less than a gluten full cake mix so I just added 3 1/2 ounces of my gluten free flour blend.  Okay, here’s the recipe:

Caramel Apple Cake

  • 18 1/2 ounce box yellow cake mix
  • 21 oz can apple pie filling
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 12 oz jar caramel ice cream topping, divided
  • Garnish: vanilla ice cream

Grease and flour a 13 x 9 baking pan and set aside.  In a bowl, combine dry cake mix, pie filling, eggs and 1/4 cup caramel topping.  Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for one -2 minutes, until blended.  Pour batter into baking pan.  Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.  Remove cake from oven. Pour remaining caramel topping over cake and spread evenly.  Serve topped with ice cream. Serves 8-10.

I am going to be totally honest.  I don’t think it needed the ice cream.  It was A-mazing without it.  And a bit sweet with.  The caramel and apple together is crazy good.

Mmm Caramel and apples, you can’t go wrong with that combo!

Oh yum! I have a bunch of apples that I got from a school sale….and I’m thinking this would be a great way to use them! I’ll have to make them into a pie filling first. But I can’ wait to try it!
