This apple cake with caramel frosting is perfect for fall. Filled with cinnamon, brown sugar and tart apples – then topped with salted caramel frosting for the perfect treat!
Today I’m sharing this incredible apple cake with caramel frosting over on Oh Sweet Basil. I was feeling especially autumnal so anything with apples and cinnamon seemed like a very good idea. But because I wanted it to be extra fall-like, it’s frosted with delicious caramel buttercream.
The apple cake itself is so delicious because it’s moist and filled with fall flavors. It has a spice cake flavor because we’re using cinnamon, nutmeg, lots of vanilla and brown sugar. Then it’s extra moist thanks to using oil, 3 eggs & sour cream. There’s tasty little bites of apple throughout the cake which goes so perfectly with the cinnamon flavor.
While the apple cake is delicious on its own – I’m pretty obsessed with the caramel frosting. It’s creamy, sweet, completely delicious, and has such a beautiful caramel color. It’s definitely sweet (caramel can’t really be any other way) so you don’t need a whole lot. But it turns this apple cake from delicious to out of this world incredible.
