Caramel and apple are perfect together. It’s sweet meets tart. They are the most fantastic combination for Autumn in this delicious home baker’s sheet cake that uses a can of premium apple pie filling mixed into the batter. This addition makes the finished cake extra moist with a creamy texture. The cake will stay moist for several days. We serve this cake with a caramel sauce that is lightly infused with orange and just a salt hint.

Spiced Sweet Apple Cake with Salted Caramel Orange Sauce

Cake:
1 ½ cup Panhandle Milling Kamut® All Purpose Flour
½ cup Sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 can Lucky Leaf Brand Premium Apple Pie filling
3 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
Salted Caramel Orange Topping:
1 cup Kraft Caramel Bits
½ cup Heavy Cream
1 tsp orange zest
½ tsp sea salt

Cake Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the apple pie filling, eggs, and sour cream.
    Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until moist, about 2 minutes.
  • Spread into greased and floured 9-inch by 13-inch cake pan and sprinkle with the spices. Bake 30-35 minutes until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely.

Caramel Sauce:

  • While the cake bakes, make the orange-infused salted caramel sauce.
  • Heat the cream and the caramel in a microwave-safe dish on medium setting for 2-3 minutes, stir well.
  • Add fresh orange zest and stir well. The sauce should be smooth.
  • Drizzle the sauce over the finished cake and serve, garnishing with additional sea salt if desired.
