Caramel Apple Pound Cake is a warm apple cake drenched in buttery, gooey caramel sauce.

This was the best cake I’ve ever eaten.

Hands down.

A warm apple cake drenched in buttery, gooey caramel sauce…. Holeeeee cow! SO good!

I love that this cake screams Fall. I have been patiently waiting for Fall to arrive. We’re still soaring in the high 90’s here in So. Utah, and I can’t take it anymore! I am so ready for cool crisp air, to wear some jeans, and decorate my house for Halloween! (which I’m going to do next weekend anyway…)

  • 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 I used Red delicious , peeled and finely chopped (2 cups)
  • Caramel Glaze:
  • 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!♥

  4. Wow, your photos look amazing just like the cake, thanks for sharing my recipe and I do hope it cools down for you soon, we are finally feeling cooler temps in VA and will be in the lower 50’s tonight…I started to put out some of my fall stuff yesterday but I was worried I was too soon, I think not!

  5. I also cannot wait for Autumn! We started our week here in NY in the lower 70s and it’s absolutely perfect. My husband and I should be moving into our first house a week or so before Halloween and I hope I can decorate sufficiently in time for some trick-or-treaters!

    This cake looks scrumptious! Can’t wait to try!! Pinning for later 🙂

  6. Oh WOOOOW! I want a big piece right now. I adore the pan dripping with the sauce in the background. =) I am wild about caramel. Hope it cools down for you soon. I decorated my house with fall decor last weekend and I love it!!!

  7. Mmmmmm……….caramel sauce and apples – nothing says fall, hayride, pep rally, football, or Halloween better than that! I’ll have to make this for my daughter – she’s not a fan of frosting and loves a good bundt cake!

  8. I’ve never seen apple pie spice before (only pumpkin pie spice). Can you tell me where to find it or what i could use to substitute?

  9. Hi! Do you think I could use apple sauce for some of the oil in this recipe? Also, need to cut back on the sugar. Maybe 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda?
