Choosing the Best Apples
If you’re planning a fall or Thanksgiving dinner, you probably want to serve an apple dish. The choices can be overwhelming, though, because there are hundreds of varieties of apples available. Now is the time to choose the best apples for cooking. When selecting apples for your caramel apple cake recipe, avoid soft or bruised fruit.
And look for apples that are sweet smelling; if they’re not fragrant, they’re probably not very flavorful. Apples that are best for baking generally have a higher amount of sugar and acid than those that are better for snacking. Tart apples (such as Granny Smith) are great choices for baking, because their acidity balances out the sweetness of the caramel sauce in this cake.
If you can’t find Granny Smiths at your local market, try varieties like Braeburns, Cortlands, Empire or Pink Lady instead. Look for firm apples with smooth skins, rather than those with bruises or soft spots. You can also use Honeycrisps or Fuji apples in place of Granny Smiths if you prefer sweeter flavors.
Caramel apple treats are a classic fall dessert. This recipe combines the flavors of caramel apples with a moist, spiced cake. The cake itself is fairly straightforward, but the caramel topping is another story. This recipe calls for brown sugar, which produces a darker caramel topping than traditional light brown sugar.
If you can’t find brown sugar in your area, you can substitute light brown sugar in the caramel topping, but the color will be lighter and less rich. The caramel topping adds just five ingredients: brown sugar, heavy cream, powdered sugar, salt and vanilla extract. It really is a simple process to turn the mix into caramel, and it is such a delight for the cake topping.
I love the smell of freshly baked cakes. The smell of this cake will make you drool, but be sure to wait until it cools down before you try it. This cake is very good when still warm, but once it cools down, the flavors are intensified. 🙂 Once you share this cake with your family and friends, be ready for them to ask for seconds. The cake is firm but moist, and the caramel add just the perfect amount of sweetness to this wonderful dish.
