When I was growing up you will be a lucky child if you get to eat an apple. Where I used to live apple is expensive and it only comes during Christmas. If you do get to eat one, it's a treat and it's nothing to waste. So when I went to my very first apple picking 2 decades ago. I felt a sense of sadness seeing those apple on the ground, just rotting, and the whole entire time I kept thinking. My goodness, those kids back home would go crazy if they see all those apples on the ground. Every time now, after all these years of apple picking, I still keep thinking of those kids back home.
Last week we took the whole family went apple picking and they went nuts, specially the
I really love this recipe, that's why I'm sharing it with you. Normally, I can honestly say, If I find a recipe that I love, I won't share it, but this is just too good to not share 'coz I love you guys.
Here's what you need:
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground all spice (decrease cinnamon to 2 tsp. if adding this spice)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 4 cups chopped apple
- 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecan (optional)
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup cream or evaporated milk
What to do:
- Mix all dry ingredients and sift, including sugar. Mix all the wet ingredients and mix well. Combine the wet into the dry and mix well. A stand mixer can used as well, but I just used my handy wooden spoon. Add the apples, nuts (optional) and vanilla extract. Mix well.
- Spoon the cake batter into a greased or sprayed with Baker's Joy baking spray bundt cake pan and bake at 350F degrees for one hour and check for doneness with a toothpick when inserted comes out clean. Bake for another 10 minutes interval if batter still sticks to the toothpick.
- Remove from the oven and poke holes on top.
- For the caramel sauce. Over low heat, melt brown sugar and butter. Stir in vanilla and cream, cook till boiling and until thick, stirring occasionally. Spoon over the top of the poked cake and let it cool in pan for 1/2 hour.
- Invert on cake plate and dust with powdered sugar. ENJOY!
Cake is best when chilled, but if you have a family who loves apples and cakes, they won't last long on the counter.
Pair this with hot tea, coffee or hot chocolate and it's just sooo yummy!
Very moist and delicious!
