I can’t believe that fall officially starts this weekend!  I used to really dread this time of year because it means that winter is right around the corner but that’s before I really got in to baking.  Now that I’m a huge baker fall is one of my favorite times of year!  The spices, apples, pumpkins, and holidays give me all the feels once school is back in session.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for Caramel Apple Sheet Cake.  While most cakes are made in cake pans or baking dishes, this one is made on a baking sheet.   This makes for a thinner cake but I think it’s better because the caramel really goes through the entire cake.  I used Nordic Ware Prism Quarter Sheet Pan.  These baking pans are awesome because the bottom is ridged and things don’t stick to it.   It was perfect for this Apple Cake!

Everything you need to make Caramel Apple Sheet Cake

One reason I like this cake is because the batter is super simple.  In fact, I bet you have all the ingredients just lying around your kitchen.  It’s a basic sheet cake that gets dressed up with apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, and caramel.

This cake smells amazing as it’s baking.  I couldn’t wait to get it out of the oven and cut it into squares.  Because it’s made in a sheet pan it’s a fairly thin cake so I didn’t feel nearly as guilty eating a piece of this as I would a regular cake.  I like that the cake stays moist from the apples throughout and the caramel on top.

Caramel Apple Sheet Cake is so easy to make and is a delicious after school snack!

To make this cake even better I added a scoop of Salted Caramel ice cream on top.  It wasn’t a very big one but the creamy ice cream added something special to the apple cake.  I also gave the ice cream a sprinkle of cinnamon.  I think vanilla bean ice cream or cinnamon ice cream would be just as good on top!
