Caramel apple poke cake is a light and moist cake that tastes like caramel apples.

This Caramel Apple Poke Cake is still visiting my dreams ever since I made it. It is light, moist and filled with caramel apple flavor. 🙂

The recipe starts off as a typical poke cake. Once the cake is baked and cooled you poke holes all over then drizzle on the sweetened condensed milk goodness. It’s what comes after that takes it to caramel apple paradise. The apple pie filling. Chunks of apples and glaze… Oh, goodness. It seeps down into the holes and makes this cake completely delicious!

The whip cream and caramel sauce top it off to cake bliss heaven. This cake is seriously amazing, and would be a nice (and yummy) change to your Thanksgiving day dessert table!
