This month our Tasty Bunch met a week later than normal because of conflicts with several of the members on our regular night. Friend Janice and her husband were the hosts. For dessert she decided to make a Caramel Apple Poke Cake. It was so good.


1       box spice cake mix + ingredients to prepare according to box directions
6      cups, peeled and chopped Granny Smith apples
2      tablespoons butter
1/4   cup granulated sugar
1/4   cup brown sugar
1       tablespoon cinnamon
1       teaspoon ground nutmeg
1       tablespoon cornstarch
1       cup caramel sauce (in a jar)
1       can whipped cream cheese frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or according to directions on spice cake mix. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 - inch baking pan.

Prepare cake mix according to directions on the box. Spread in baking pan and bake as long as directed on the box.

Let the cake cool 20 minutes. *

While the cake is cooling, prepare and then cook the apples in a large skillet over medium heat in the butter until soft, stirring occasionally (about 8 minutes).

Combine the sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch to the cooked apples until well mixed. Remove from heat.

*(After the cake has cooled the 20 minutes, poke holes all over the cake with a wooden spoon. Heat caramel sauce to thin in microwave. Pour over cake so that the sauce can soak in the holes. Save a little to drizzle over frosted cake.)

Evenly spread apples over the cake. Allow to cool completely for several hours.

Spread whipped frosting over the apples. Drizzle with a little caramel sauce.

Serve plain or with a scoop of ice cream.
