Apple Cake with Caramel Glaze Recipe

Apple Cake with Caramel Glaze recipe

This Apple Cake recipe originated years ago in Paula Deen cookbook, but please don't hold that against it. As you may suspect the sugar and butter called for could give the healthiest of hearts an attack. So, to save us a trip to the ER, portions have been modified :)

This Apple Cake boasts a rich flavor & deep Fall flavors!

Apple Cake with Caramel Glaze recipe

My Dad lives just down the road from my favorite apple orchard in North Carolina. Thankfully, he delivered an entire peck of apples to our house on his last visit! Then life got away with me and these apples almost went bad before baking. That would've been such a shame!

This apple cake was the perfect welcome to the Fall season for our household. While I enjoyed the cake with a tall glass of milk, Brandon much preferred a scoop of vanilla bean. Whichever way you serve it up, there's no doubt every last bite will fill your soul with a bit of seasonal spirit.
