This recipe originally came from my friend’s aunt Sal. My mother-in-law had a version of this recipe and would make it before she put up her apples in the Fall for winter baking and eating. I continued to make this recipe before putting up sweetened apple slices and applesauce so that we had them well into the winter months. There is no law that says you can’t go to the supermarket and buy enough apples to make this delightful taste treat at any time of the year. In today’s world, we are not held captive to when the apples grow in our area. This cake is too rich to eat more than one square. It’s what every good dessert should be: gooey and sweet. If you have a sweet tooth and love apples this is just the cake for you. Mix apples, sugar, oil eggs and vanilla. Add rest of ingredients and mix well. When cake is done, remove from oven. Cake can be served plain, sprinkled with powdered sugar or poke holes in top and then pour caramel icing over cake. This drizzle icing has a rich caramel taste, goes on gooey and makes any cake into a can’t resist sweetness. This recipe is so simple and was originally used on the Apple Cake recipe but can be drizzled over any bundt cake that cries out for that caramel taste such as spice cakes. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and cook for 2-1/2 minutes. Dessert Recipes20 Apple Recipes–What to Do With So Many Apples?

Apple Cake With Caramel Drizzle Icing

The Best Taste From Apple Cake

The finished dough should be about 1/8″-1/4″ thick and 2 inches larger in diameter than the pie plate. You do not need to grease a pie plate. There is more than enough fat in the dough to keep it from sticking. Fold your rolled dough in half, lift gently into the plate, unfold and pat into position. There should be a nice amount of overhang. Don’t cut it off as you’ll need it to build up your edge. Place the pie plate back in the fridge and let the crust rest while you roll out the top half. When you roll out your dough, you give those glutens a wake up call; by letting it rest in the cold for another couple of minutes, you will put them back to bed. Roll out your top crust, fill the bottom and drape the top over the filling. Pinch the edges of the two crusts together and then fold the overhang back up, squeezing a little to secure as you rotate the plate.

Poke a few holes in the top crust with a fork so that the steam will have some place to go and allow the pie to rest in the fridge for another 5-10 minutes before baking. Depending upon the type of pie you’re making, you may need to blind bake your crust. All this means is that you will pre-bake your crust before you fill it. Most pumpkin pie recipes will require a ten-minute browning of the crust but don’t need to be baked completely since the pumpkin custard requires additional cooking time. There are a few pitfalls with blind baking but they’re pretty easy to avoid. To avoid puffing, shrinking and splitting (OH MY!), you can either cover your pastry with a sheet of parchment and fill with dried beans or use ceramic or metal beaded pie weights. You can purchase pie weights and parchment paper at most kitchen supply stores. Making anything from scratch is a daunting yet thoroughly satisfying endeavor. Not only does it make you feel good about yourself, but the food you prepare will almost always taste far superior to what you once paid a machine to cook for you. Follow the three golden rules of pie dough (they’re listed above) and after a little trial and error, you’ll be guaranteed golden, flaky crust for the rest of your pie making days.
