Apple Spice Cake

Caramel Sauce

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 T water
  • 2 T light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 T butter


Make the Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Sift the first 9 ingredients together in a bowl and make sure they are thoroughly combined.
  • Beat the butter with a stand mixer until creamy.
  • Add the sugar and mix until incorporated.
  • Add the flour mixture in two parts, alternating with the eggs, sour cream, and milk.
  • Fold in the apples.
  • Pour into your prepared baking pan(s).It will make 2 round 8 or 9 inch cakes or 1 large bundt.
  • Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, until it is brown all over and a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Top with caramel sauce (recipe below).

Make the Sauce

  • Combine the sugar, water, and the corn syrup in a large saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
  • Cover the saucepan and let it cook over medium heat for 3 minutes.
  • After 3 minutes, remove the lid, increase the heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil.
  • Do not stir from this point on, but instead swirl the liquid around the pan so that the caramel doesn’t burn.
  • Continue to cook until the caramel turns an even amber color then remove from the heat and let stand for about 30 seconds.
  • *** Be careful here *** Pour the heavy cream into the mixture. The mixture will bubble up significantly and is very hot.
  • Stir the mixture, again being careful. Add the butter. Stir until combined.
  • Measure 1 cup into a Pyrex measuring cup. Stirring occasionally, allow to cool until thick like molasses and warm to the touch, about 20 minutes.
  • Pour over the apple spice cake and serve.


Save any extra caramel sauce in a sealed container in the refrigerator - it's delicious over ice cream!
