easy apple caramel cake!

Tomorrow is my birthday! I took the day off work after 10 years of working every birthday. I will be going shopping for new clothing and I really am craving a nice big wedge fry poutine.

This Thanksgiving I was in charge of bringing a dessert. I was thinking and scouring Pinterest and other blogs but really couldn’t decided what to make. I waited so long that I ended up just coming up with this quick cheater dessert the day before our Thanksgiving dinner.

Here is what you need;

  • Caramels
  • 2 boxes of yellow cake mix
  • 2 – 3 apples -peeled, cored and sliced
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 C water


First preheat your oven to the directions on the box (usually it’s 350° F) and core, peel and slice your apples if you haven’t done so prior to starting. They will brown a bit but that doesn’t affect the taste or anything.

Take your cake mixes and pour them into a large bowl, break apart any chunks with a fork. Add in eggs and water and mix thoroughly with a fork or use a hand mixer.


Pour the batter in a greased pan and set aside. Next take your caramels and unwrap them. I used 16 caramels because I quartered them with a sharp knife.

Add the caramel pieces and the cored apples to the top of the cake (you can sprinkle some cinnamon if you want to), and pop the cake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes.


After the edges of the cake are brown, remove the cake, add tin foil to the edges and place back in the oven for another 10 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven when a toothpick can be inserted and removed cleanly.


Serve warm with ice cream. It’s super moist and delicious!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow and a safe Hallowe’en! LO is going to be out and about actually getting candy this year and I swear it’s not for me to eat!
