APPLE SPICE CAKE WITH CARAMEL FROSTING

Apple Spice Cake with Caramel Frosting This Apple Spice Cake won’t last long and the Caramel Frosting just tops it off.  I love anything with apples and caramel! Great if you need a quick dessert since it uses a mix.

1 (18.25 ounce) Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 stick butter or margarine or 8 tablespoons, softened
2 cups apples, peeled and grated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
 
Mix all ingredients together with mixer.  Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.  Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes.

1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups confectionery sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup walnut pieces or nuts of your choice.
 
Melt butter in pan on top of stove.  Add brown sugar and cook until sugar melts.  Add milk, bring to boil. Remove from stove and add confectionery sugar and vanilla.   Beat with mixer, adding more sugar if needed. Fold in nuts.   Spread on cake.
 
Note:  I like to poke holes in the cake and just pour the frosting over the cake.  Frosting will harden as it cools.

  7. Looks awesome, can’t wait to try!

  8. NO YOU DIDN’T!! And I’m trying my best to behave!

  9. I’m on my way over, Judy, for a piece of that cake, right now. Will be making it as soon as it’s “officially” fall. Would it be wrong to add some ice cream or homemade whipped cream to this decadence???
