One of my favorite fall combinations – apple and caramel.

I love it, oh, so many ways. Here is one of my favorites.

I just discovered a new favorite way to enjoy apples and caramel together – Apple Caramel Bundt Cake.

This recipe came from my good friend Deb back in Minnesota. She promised me I would love it and as always, she was right!

It was part of the dessert buffet at my Mummies Night Out fundraiser and got lots of rave reviews. I thought it looked darling with my Halloween cake bunting I made for the party.

The cake is full of goodness – apples and pecans but the best part is the entire thing is bathed in caramel sauce!

I made the cake in the morning because of time restraints and it was delicious but I think it would be amazing to eat it smothered in the caramel sauce warm out of the oven. Heaven!

I have issues with getting cakes out of cake pans all in one piece. The bath of caramel helps to hide a multitude of sins! Or at least no one is going to care that it doesn’t look perfect after they taste it!

Printable Recipe

3 eggs

2 C sugar

1 1/2 C canola oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 C cake flour (Deb says she used regular and it worked fine)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

3 C apples, chopped and peeled (I used jonagold)

1 C pecans, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease and flour bundt pan, set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy; gradually add sugar; blend in oil and vanilla.

Combine flour, salt and baking soda; add to egg mixture. Stir in apples and pecans. Pour into bundt pan and bake for one hour or until cake tests done.

Caramel Sauce

1/2 C butter

1/4 C milk

1 C brown sugar

pinch of salt.

In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients for sauce; boil for 3 minutes, stir constantly. Set aside.

When cake is done, let cool in pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove cake to platter; slowly pour caramel topping over warm cake and serve. I poked holes in the cake with a bambook skewer before pouring the caramel sauce over it.
