Caramel Apple Cake

Caramel apple cake is the perfect fall dessert, especially since it highlights the delicious apples of autumn! The sweet caramel is just icing on the cake, so to speak.

I went and did it. I’ve broken every one of my seasonal rules that keep me from getting to far ahead of myself. Or, like I will be in early to mid November, too excited about the upcoming season and events. I have rules about not changing the candles in the house from sunshine and buttercups to pumpkins and leaves. Rules about not wearing boots, making sure to get every moment of flip flop wearing weather in. And of course, rules about not decorating, not fantasizing, certainly not shopping, and not cooking out of season.

But I went and did it. The first whiff of ‘autumn orgasm’ from those wretched scent stores yanked me in, as did the over abundance of apples and squashes at the market. And the abnormal rainy, cold or otherwise gray weather for my area just sent it all over the top.

Plug-ins were changed, soaps stashed until next spring, cute flats brought out and dusted off (still holding out for the boots), candy corn on the counter and worst of all autumn baking was being had.

Posting a recipe for caramel apple cake isn’t a huge deal, as by the time I post this, it will only be a few more days until the official start of fall.

But to be honest, I was saving the post, because I baked the caramel apple cake a while ago…. Shame on me.

*In case you may not have noticed, this caramel apple cake, dripping with delicious caramel, was a bit of a hot mess for me. I recommend using a plate with a slight dome in the center, not a flat cake plate to catch all of the caramel gooey-ness, saving yourself some bitching clean up. Or you can live life on the edge like me.

Oh YUM!! Kita this cake is GORGEOUS! Someone actually sent me this recipe a while back, suggesting I make it for my blog. I never got around to it though. May still have to try it!! By the way - I too have given in to Autumn fever. Despite the humid & 78-degree weather here I've (gasp!) even worn BOOTS! Hahaha ohhh yeah, it's a sickness.
