A new twist on the salted-caramel craze. Throw in some apples and you've got a very decadent dessert. I'm making it this weekend.

How to Make SALTED CARAMEL APPLE CAKE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Butter the bottom of a 10-inch round cake pan (I used a 10-inch deep-dish pie pan) with 4 Tbsp. of the butter. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and the sea salt.
  • 2Heat remaining 2 Tbsp. cold butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apples; saute 13 to 15 minutes, until tender. Cool.
  • 3In a large bowl, whisk flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and salt. In a second large bowl, beat softened butter and remaining 1 cup brown sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then vanilla.
  • 4On low speed, beat flour mixture into butter mixture, alternating with half-and-half. Scrape down sides of bowl; beat for 1 minute.
  • 5Fan apples over bottom of prepared pan. Spread batter over apples. Bake in a preheated 350º oven for 45 to 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes.
  • 6Run a small knife around edge of pan. Place a serving plate on top of pan and turn plate and pan over together. Carefully remove pan. If any apples remain in pan, place on cake.
  • 7Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream, if desired (or even ice cream!).
