A delightful dessert that includes apples, cider, spice cake and an amazing caramel frosting! This reminds me of fall, but I will eat this every day of the year if I could..So good!!!

  • 1¼ c. Spiced Apple Cider or regular Apple Cider
  • ⅓ c. cinnamon applesauce
  • ⅓ c. sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 c. apple-cinnamon pie filling (approximately ¾ of can) if you can't find use apple pie filling with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon mixed in

  • ½ c. butter (1 stick), room temperature
  • 4 oz. cream cheese (1/2 brick), room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 c. powdered sugar
  • 18 caramels (like Kraft or Brach’s) plus 1 Tbsp. water for melting
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan, and set aside.
  2. In mixing bowl, combine cake mix, cider, apple sauce, sour cream and eggs. Mix for about 2 minutes on low, until thoroughly combine and smooth. Pour evenly in the bundt pan.

  4. Bake at 350 for 42-45 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
