My family loves this cake. It's always a big hit. Also if you like a lot of apple use two cans of apple pie filling or add extra apple slices.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

There is just something about apples and caramel together we love. This awesome dessert is fall in every bite. The apple cake reminds us of an apple cobbler. It has a crunchy top with a soft and juicy inside. Make sure to serve this while warm. The ice cream melts a bit and even more magic happens.

How To Make double apple caramel cake

Test Kitchen Tips
This can be baked in a 9x9 pan. But in our oven, it wasn't baking evenly. We found pouring the batter into a 9x13 pan worked best for this dessert in our ovens.
  • Cake mix, eggs, applesauce, and water mixed together in a bowl.
    Add cake mix, eggs, applesauce and water to a bowl. Mix until smooth.
  • Batter poured into a baking dish.
    Pour into a lightly greased 9x13 glass or metal cake pan. Smooth into the pan.
  • Apple pie filling added to the baking dish.
    Pour the apple pie filling into the center of the cake batter.
  • Spreading out the apples.
    Spread lightly to the ends of the pan but, not all the way.
  • Cake baking in the oven.
    Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Double Apple Caramel Cake with caramel drizzled and vanilla ice cream.
    Drizzle caramel over hot cake. Top with vanilla ice cream and drizzle more caramel on top.
