Can you taste a slice of this AMAZING cake filled with chunks of tart apple wrapped in a moist tender cake? Drizzle with a warm sweet caramel sauce over the top – and there you have food for angels.
Scrumptious Caramel Apple Cake
1 pkg. (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
1 pkg. (4-serving size) Jell-O Vanilla or French vanilla flavor instant pudding & pie filling – leave DRY, do NOT prepare with liquid
1 cup water
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 Granny smith apples, peeled and coarsely chopped
1/2 pkg. caramel bits (such as Kraft)
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Generously coat a bundt pan with spray release OR butter well and coat with granulated sugar.
To make sure your cake does not stick (sometimes it can be difficult to get a cake such as this out of the bundt pan), use a 9×13″ or a spring form pan that is lined with parchment paper and coated with non-stick spray release or butter and sugar.
Beat cake mix, dry pudding mix, water, eggs and oil in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed until blended, then on high speed 2 minutes. Gently fold in apples and caramel bits. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 50 minutes to 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool 20 minutes; remove from pan.
Cool on wire rack for 5 minutes; cover with saran wrap and cool completely.
Serve cake with sauce warmed bottled caramel sauce.
