Caramel Apple Easy Cake

This Caramel Apple Easy Cake is such a fun dessert to serve to your family and friends…don’t forget the ice cream with just a drizzle of caramel sauce! 2015-09-08-7112 This Caramel Apple Easy Cake is a cross between a few of my favorite flavors and a dump cake. Good apples and a few added touches are what really make this cake!

Forget about dump cakes being boring or ho-hum, this cake is REALLY good and by good I mean FANTASTC! This cake is warm apples, caramel, chocolate and yummy cinnamon cake all in one…lots of wonderful fall flavors happening here. :)

There’s just something about a warm caramel apple dessert with ice cream melting on top that is VERY hard to resist, and don’t forget the caramel drizzle! Just a little bit of caramel drizzle makes this dessert wonderful!

This dessert is perfect as the apples start to ripen and those wonderful fall flavors are everywhere! But really this would be a good dessert any time of year.

Today I share with you my Caramel Apple Easy Cake…enjoy my friends!

2015-09-08-7096 You can slice the apples any way you want to. Usually I use my apple master but today I did something different. I just used my apple cutter/slicer that cores and wedges the apples.

Then I cut each wedge into two slices and disposed of the apple cores – it worked great!  2015-09-08-7100 The apples slices aren’t too thin, you don’t want them real thin, apples bake down quite a bit. Be sure to scatter your cut up Milky Way Simply Caramel bars evenly.


No this is not burnt! The darkness you’re seeing is from the cinnamon and I love cinnamon so I use a lot of it! My recipe below uses less cinnamon than I did.


I really thought this cake was going to need some chocolate sauce, but it really doesn’t. The fun size chocolate caramel bars give you just enough chocolate and caramel baked into the cake. But if you want to add chocolate sauce, feel free! :)
