Apple #Cake with Caramel Glaze

We were invited to dinner at a neighbor's and I wanted to take something along and found this recipe for apple cake.  The best part was I had everything on hand already and didn't need to go to the grocery store.

The cake was wonderfully moist with good flavor.  The caramel glaze was...wait for it...the icing on the cake. 


2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
2 tsps vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
3 medium apples, peeled and cored and chopped

1/2 cup butter
2 tsps heavy cream
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Prepare apples.

Beat sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs until light and fluffy.

Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and stir into batter until blended.

Fold in the apples by hand. The batter will be thick.  Pour into prepared bundt pan.

Bake for 55 to 70 minutes. ) Mine took around 55 minutes so be sure to check often.)

Allow to cool for 20 minutes in the pan and then invert onto a wire rack or cake plate.

Caramel Glaze

Heat the butter, heavy cream and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Bring to a boil.  Stir to dissolve sugar.  Remove from heat.

Add vanilla and stir.  Let sit 5 to 10 minutes to thicken.

Drizzle over cake.

  1. That looks deliciously lethal!

  2. This really does sound wonderful!
    What does one do with the rest of the heavy cream when needing only this small amount?

    By the way, this made me laugh: "Add vanilla and stir. Let sit 5 to 10 minutes to chicken."

    1. Libby, that made me laugh too! Glad you caught that. I'll go and fix it. I can always find a way to use heavy cream lol. Hubby likes a dribble in his coffee and I make a couple of dishes that use 1/4 cup or so. The ultra pasteurized cream lasts a long time in the fridge.

  3. Yum! And I bet the caramel glaze would be good on other sweet treats, too.

    1. It's quite yummy just eaten off the end of your finger! Shhhh, don't tell!
