Caramel Apple Bundt Cake

This is the third and final recipe from the dessert table at Mummies Night Out.
One of my favorite fall combinations – apple and caramel.

I love it, oh, so many ways. Here is one of my favorites.

I just discovered a new favorite way to enjoy apples and caramel together – Apple Caramel Bundt Cake.

Bundt Cake

This recipe came from my good friend Deb back in Minnesota. She promised me I would love it and as always, she was right!

It was part of the dessert buffet at my Mummies Night Out fundraiser and got lots of rave reviews. I thought it looked darling with my Halloween cake bunting I made for the party.

The cake is full of goodness – apples and pecans but the best part is the entire thing is bathed in caramel sauce!

I made the cake in the morning because of time restraints and it was delicious but I think it would be amazing to eat it smothered in the caramel sauce warm out of the oven. Heaven!

I have issues with getting cakes out of cake pans all in one piece. The bath of caramel helps to hide a multitude of sins! Or at least no one is boing to care that it doesn’t look perfect after they taste it!

    I’m looking forward to trying this recipe. For today I had some ripe bananas, so I just made your Best Banana Bread recipe. I guess I’m on a HBM roll, because on Sunday I’m making the Oreo Cookie Cupcakes for my daughters soccer party. Thanks for all the great recipes.
