How to Make Apple Caramel Cake


  1. For the cake:
    Mix all ingredients together by hand. Pour into 2 - 8 in round cake pans that have been greased and floured. Bake at 350 degrees for 26-30 minutes. Allow the cakes to cool and frost with homemade caramel frosting. Decorate with toasted pecans.
  2. For the frosting:
    Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir in brown sugar and cream. Bring to a boil and then transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add sugar and vanilla. Beat with a mixer until everything is creamed together well. If the frosting is to thick, just add a bit of cream. This frosting is very thick and rich, and once spread on the cake will actually smooth itself out for an beautiful finish. Ice the cake once the frosting is cooled about 15-20 minutes, and re stir it before putting on the cake.
