A moist yellow cake is baked full of chunks of apples, baked and then poked all over and drenched in homemade caramel sauce. This dessert is delicious!



  • 2 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cups Vegetable oil
  • 3 Cups AP Flour
  • 2 TSP Vanilla Extract
  • 2 1/2 Cups Fresh Diced Apples ( I used Granny Smith)
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 1/2 Sticks of butter
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/8 Cup Heavy Cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9 X 13-inch pan.
  2. Cream together the sugar and oils. Mix in egg and vanilla.
  3. Mix in flour until fully combined.
  4. Fold in diced apples and sour cream
  5. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Once the cake is out of the oven immediately begin making the caramel topping
  7. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat combine the butter, brown sugar and heavy cream. Mix constantly and let boil for 2 minutes.
