I am super excited to have Holly from Life as a Lofthouse here today! She is so sweet and has tons of delicious and easy recipes on her blog. She lured me in with her tempting goodies like these Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, Candy Bar Cupcakes, and Red Velvet Brownies. Ok, wipe away the drool and give Holly a warm welcome!
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 large eggs
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons apple pie spice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 medium Red apples, peeled and finely chopped (2 cups)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons milk
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 12-cup fluted tube cake pan.
In a large bowl, add the granulated sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs. With an electric hand mixer, beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.
Gradually beat in flour, apple pie spice, salt and baking soda until just combined. Stir in apple pieces.
Pour mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cake cool in pan for 15 minutes, and then invert onto a cooling rack.
For Caramel Glaze: Place all glaze ingredients in a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat. Stir until butter melts, and then comes to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly; remove from heat. Spoon glaze all over the warm cake.
Cut cake into slices and serve with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!♥
