CARAMEL APPLE COFFEE CAKE
I am in the full swing mode of fall baking. And I love it! Despite the heat outdoors, I am enjoying fall soups, home-baked bread and cakes. Like this one. Caramel Apple Coffee Cake. Does this look yummy or what??
Remember my Salted Butter Caramel Sauce? It took the internet by storm!! I am not surprised. I had to use it in this cake. It’s just perfect with apple coffee cake!
Besides that, I highly recommend this recipe. You can find it in “Southern Living” magazine, September issue on newsstands now, or on the website, here. This is one of my favorite magazines. I always get all giddy when it arrives in the mail. Just looking at the cover, I knew there would be a lot of goodies inside. I was right! I made the cake the same day I got my issue. And it was amazing! The batter is so moist and airy. You layer sauteed apples on top, drizzle with caramel sauce and top with the most delicious streusel topping ever!
