Super moist and delicious fresh apple cake loaded with fresh apple chunks and flavored with warm fall spices. Top it off with a salted caramel glaze for a decadent treat!
You know what your holiday menu needs? An apple cake. But not just any apple cake, but a cake so full of apples will leave you wondering where’s the cake!! And if all that apple goodness was not enough, once baked, you drench it in a salted caramel glaze.
Caramel apples are a mandatory fall treat and if you want my opinion, making this cake is easier than biting into a caramel covered apple. You and your dentist will thank me later 🙂
Now, seriously, this apple cake is amazing! It’s packed with roughly chopped apples, scented with cinnamon and apple pie spices with just a couple of pecans thrown in for a little crunch and the cake is finished with a homemade salted caramel glaze.
My little family has a bucket list for each season. Obviously some of the activities repeat themselves year after year. Jumping in the leaves, going to a pumpkin patch, carving a pumpkin, drinking apple cider and later hot cocoa are just a few from our fall bucket list.
Apple picking has been on the list this year like every other year. But between some sick days and traveling for a couple of weeks we just couldn’t find the time to go apple picking.
I had the pleasure of trying these apples the first time a few weeks ago while in Seattle for this year’s International Food Blogger Conference. I have to admit that I was a little skeptic when I saw the apples.
What’s so special about this apple, I asked? “It’s crisp and juicy with tropical flavors”
The answer made me even more curious to give it a try. Surprise, surprise! This apple went to the Caribbean and came back full of flavor!
Now don’t be upset that you don’t have any pinata apples! I saw them a few weeks ago at Trader’s Joe and even picked some the other day from Kroger’s. Look for them in your grocery store 🙂
