Talk about comfort food….This Salted Caramel Apple Cake is best served warm and really hits the spot on a cool Fall or Winter Day!

Salted Caramel Apple Cake

I love easy recipes, and you can make this one with a Yellow Cake Mix made according to the instructions on the box, some apples, whipping cream, brown sugar and butter.  Add a nutty flair with a few pecans mixed in and top with caramel sauce and whipped cream.  This is actually an upside-down cake that is best served warm and definitely a crowd pleaser!

This recipe is one of my go to recipes when I am in a hurry and I want something a little different yet simple and quick!  It will disappear from your table quickly!

  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 large cooking apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • (about 2 1/3 cups)
  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • Topping

  • 1/2 cup Whipped Topping

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In 1-quart heavy saucepan, cook butter, whipping cream and brown sugar over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until butter is melted. Pour into 13x9-inch pan. Sprinkle with pecans; top with sliced apples.
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs and apple pie spice with electric mixer on low speed until moistened, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Carefully spoon batter over apple mixture.

Place heatproof serving platter upside down on pan; carefully turn platter and pan over. Let pan remain over cake about 1 minute so caramel can drizzle over cake. Remove pan.
