I’ve been craving something cinnamon spicy. Something sweet, but not overly sugary. I decided to make my Apple Cider Spice Cake with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting. However, after making it from my original recipe using apple pie filling, I experienced a disappointing baking fail – only half the cake came out of the pan. After this happened, I decided to adapt my original recipe to use fresh apples instead of the pie filling. It was a huge success!
My craving was completely satisfied! The cake is moist, delicious and with the fresh Granny Smith apples, it adds a bit of tart flavor and texture to the sweet cake. The Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting is the perfect way to top this cake! This creamy, gooey frosting compliments the spice cake wonderfully and with a sprinkle of freshly ground nutmeg on top rounds out the flavors perfectly.
This cake is really easy, as it comes together in just a few steps. The recipe utilizes a cake mix and I add a few extra goodies like applesauce, apple cider and sour cream to keep the cake moist and delicious.
This cake is perfect for just about any occasion – a fall get-together, pot-luck, church social, or just something for you and your family at home. Here’s the easy recipe:
