CARAMEL APPLE SPICE CAKE RECIPE

Jul 11, 2020

This Caramel Apple Spice Cake has so much flavor from apples, cinnamon, caramel, and nuts! It’s always a favorite but I especially love it in the fall!

You’ll Need

FOR THE CAKE

1/2 cup (1stick) (113 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup (107 g) vegetable oil
2 cups (400 g) granulated sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons (6 g) vanilla extract
1 cup (252 g) applesauce (unsweetened)
3 cups (342 g) all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon (3 g) salt
1 teaspoon (5 g) baking soda
1 Tablespoon ( 9 g) cinnamon
2 cups (250 g) grated apples, peeled before grating. I used Granny Smith (3 large apples or 4 medium) ( I used the large holes on a box grater
1 cup (100 g) chopped pecans or walnuts
Zest of 1 small lemon (optional)
1 Jar of Caramel Sauce/topping for spreading on layers and drizzling
Cream Cheese Frosting (or your filling/frosting of choice. see our Recipes section!)
*Makes approximately 6 1/2 cups of batter

FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING (WE ALSO LIKE APPLE SPICE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING WITH THIS RECIPE)
2 sticks ,1 cup, (226g) unsalted butter, slightly softened
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (total weight 452g) I use full fat cream cheese. Using reduced fat or the spreadable cream cheese will cause the frosting to be too soft. Soften very slightly.
2 teaspoons (8 g) vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt (2g) optional – it will cut the sweetness, popcorn salt is best to use because it is fine and dissolves faster
6 to 6 1/2 cups (690g to 747g) powdered sugar
