Do you have a favorite dessert? What is it? I don’t know if I can limit myself to one favorite dessert, there are so many decadent choices. I do however tend to favor desserts that aren’t chocolate. I know, I know how is that possible? It’s not that I don’t like chocolate, I do get a craving now and then for a big chewy brownie or a warm chocolate chip cookie. However, if I had a choice between those and a slice of coconut cream pie, a big bowl of ice cream, or a chunk of this amazing cake, I would have to choose the later.
I got the idea for this cake from a fabulous food blog called Une Gamine dans la Cuisine. Her recipe for Chunky Apple Cake had me drooling.
The salted caramel glaze on top of this cake is really what makes it extra special. The caramel oozes into every pocket and crevice of the cake, giving you a salty and sweet bite with every forkful…I had many forkfuls. The salted caramel comes from another favorite website of mine called Two Peas and Their Pod.You could always buy store bought caramel sauce, but there is something magical and fulfilling about making your own. Head on over to their site for the salty sweet caramel recipe, trust me you won’t regret it!
