i completely agree with adding more caramel candies... this was really good - i did not try it with a topping and i think it could use one - it was wonderful when put in the toaster over for a few seconds... it takes a long time & the cake is very heavy but if you have nothing to do on a stormy weekend day - then this is the project for you!!!
Served it the first time to company...they loved it! I added about 1/2 cup more of chopped apples...I like the moisture it added and I also used 1/2 bag of caramel bits that you can buy instead of cutting caramels. For a glaze I made a powdered sugar glaze and then added the same amount of caramel syrup (for ice cream) and drizzeled it over top. Fabulous!
I made this cake for my family but my kids did not take to it too well. The cake is heavy; like a pound cake. My husband and I enjoyed it however and I took what we didn't eat to the teacher's lounge at the school where I teach where it received rave reviews and several requests for copies of the recipe.
This seems to be a love it or hate it recipe! it seems OK I guess but I've had better. I cut the sugar back by 1/3 cup (I also used granulated instead of icing sugar - 2C). I increased the apples to 3 medium granny smiths - but didn't chop them fine enough. I should have added the whole bag of caramels too. I note that there is no leavening agent in the recipe which is why most are saying that it is heavy. 2 tsp of baking soda fixed that - the cake is not heavy. I also added 1/2 tsp of salt for flavoring. The cake is not too sweet now so I am adding a caramel frosting to improve the flavor.
I HAVE TO AGREE WITH ONE USER THE CAKE IS VERY HEAVY. I REALLY WAS NOT THRILLED WITH IT. FOR ONE THING IT TAKES ABOUT 20 MINUTES CUTTING THE CARAMELS AND YOUR HAND HURTS AFTER. I BROUGHT IT TO A HALL CLEAN-UP DAY AND WAS NOT REALLY A HIT. IT TASTED REALLY BLAND TOO. I THINK THE CARAMELS WOULD TASTE GOOD IN A LIGHTER CAKE. I'M SORRY BUT I WILL NOT USE THIS RECIPE AGAIN
