Caramel Apple Sheet Cake

Caramel Apple Sheet Cake

Growing up, I absolutely loved caramel apples (minus the few years I had braces and I couldn’t enjoy the treat). Sticky and sweet on the outside, crunchy and a bit tart on the inside. I still think caramel apples are one of the best autumn desserts. When I stumbled upon this Apple Sheet Cake, I saw an opportunity to be reunited with my favorite flavors.

The original recipe calls for maple icing. I swapped in store bought caramel sauce. No need to completely cover the cake in caramel, just a light drizzle is enough. It’s better to err on the side of caution when pouring the caramel so you can still see the apple slices peaking underneath.

This is a very moist and flavorful cake that is quite reminiscent of sticky toffee pudding. The cake batter includes 2 shredded apples and a generous portion of apple butter. Be sure to use APPLE BUTTER, not applesauce. Apple butter is a very concentrated form of applesauce. It’s richer in flavor, darker in color, and a bit thicker in texture. Now that it’s autumn, apple butter should be readily available at your local market. Otherwise, it’s also very easy to make at home.

If you’re thinking of serving this for a special meal (think: Thanksgiving!), a scoop of vanilla ice cream would be a welcome addition on top!

HERE ARE THE CHANGES I MADE TO THE ORIGINAL RECIPE:

  • Add 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon to all-purpose flour
  • Increase all-purpose flour to 2 cups (instead of 1 2/3 cups)
  • Omit 1 cup dried apples. Instead, add another apple for shredding.
  • Instead of maple icing, drizzle store bought caramel sauce over finished cake
