Apple Caramel Crunch Cake

September 23, 2010 Comments Off on Apple Caramel Crunch Cake


On Monday evening I baked a German chocolate cake for my dads birthday. I don’t eat chocolate so I wanted to make something that I could also enjoy. I went to DC last weekend to visit my sis and nephew and picked up some delicious and sweet honey crisp apples at the local farmers market. Theses yummy apples were the inspiration for this cake.

I made mini cakes but this can also be prepared in a bunt or loaf pan.

Enjoy your weekend!

Prepare cake according to instructions. Peel and dice the apple into tiny pieces then add apples to the cake batter. Pour into the pan of your choice. Spoon caramel by the teaspoon evenly into the batter. Use a knife to blend the caramel do not stir. Set a side. For the topping, whisk flour, sugars, nuts, and cinnamon.
