Are you looking at this Caramel Apple Toffee Cake? It is the perfect make ahead Fall dessert.
You can easily take it to a party, a potluck or make it a day ahead for Thanksgiving!
I wish I could give you each a big bite through the screen, I promise you would be in your kitchen immediately making this cake.
It’s so ridiculously and perfectly over the top, but also still SUPER easy to make. You can also make it with a boxed cake mix!
I started with cinnamon cake that is from scratch, but also really simple to make.
It doesn’t require any beaters or anything crazy – just two bowls and whisk. I used melted butter and oil to make sure it stays super moist.
In the center of the cake, is a thick layer of apple pie filling and little toffee bits all mixed together.
The toffee bits and apple bites bake right into the cake and creates the perfect texture throughout.
As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, you poke it with a bunch of little holes and drizzle it with caramel sauce.
You can make your own homemade caramel sauce or use store bought — either way is delicious and no one will know.
The warm apple spice cake soaks up all that caramel sauce as it cools. This is the hardest part – waiting!
The next layer is a thick layer of homemade whipped cream or cool whip – it’s totally up to you.
I will warn you, homemade whipped cream does not hold up half as long as cool whip does.
So, if you want to use homemade whipped cream, frost the cake when you are ready to serve.
If you are using cool whip, you can top it up to a day before and store it in the fridge!
Then we finish off this Caramel Apple Toffee Cake with an extra healthy drizzle of caramel and toffee bites.
The little toffee bites on top add a little crunch to each soft cake filled bite.
