Caramel Apple Coffee Cake
Caramel Apple Coffee Cake is a simple but delicious twist on coffee cake, made with fresh apples and brown sugar & cinnamon topping.
- 1 spice cake mix just the dry mix! I prefer Duncan Hines
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup apple sauce
- ½ cup instant vanilla pudding
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Caramel Apple Topping
- 2 apples peeled, cored, and chopped into 1/2" pieces
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- sprinkle cinnamon
Add all the apple topping ingredients to a sauce pan and cook on medium-high heat until a caramel sauce forms and the apples soften. Set aside to cool completely.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13 metal pan.
Mix all the coffee cake ingredients in a mixer for 7 minutes (this is key to make the pudding set). I love to use my Kitchen Aid mixer for this!
Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
Pour half of the batter in the greased 9 x 13 metal pan. Sprinkle ½ of the brown sugar mix over the cake in the pan.
Pour the remaining batter on and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Do not add apples yet.
Place in oven and bake 15-20 minutes. Open oven and gently sprinkle the apples over the coffee cake. Close oven and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the cake is set and is pulling away from the edges.
Let it completely cool. Then, cut, serve and devour.
