Caramel Toffee Apple Cake

Caramel Toffee Apple Cake is a tender and moist cake with apples baked right inside!  Topped with cool whip topping toffee bits and drizzled in caramel, this will become a new favorite! 

I might be borderline obsessed with the caramel apple flavor combination.  They just go together so well and remind me of a fresh caramel dipped apple.   This cake combines all of the things that I love.  Our favorite apple filling from Lucky Leaf is baked right inside this super moist and tender cake.

This cake is simple to make and requires little effort!  You start with a box cake mix and mix the apple filling right inside of the cake.  You add some cinnamon to it to give it some spice and it comes out to be the perfect cake.

I have yet to find a more premium and delicious can of apples.  I really love using Lucky Leaf filling with all of my baking.  The apples are perfect and packed inside of each can.  They really are key in adding a delicious texture and flavor to this cake.

As soon as the cake has cooled you top if off with whipped topping, toffee bits and drizzle it in caramel.  It is such a delicious cake and perfect for feeding a crowd.  Everyone who will try this cake will rave about it!

    1. The apple pie filling is a specialty from Lucky Leaf. You are welcome to try using fresh apples but making your own apple pie filling to fill the cake. I have not made it that way. You will have to let me know how it turns out!! Good luck! Xo

  1. Well, I just made my fourth Caramel Toffee Apple Cake. Talk about easy. It is now the family favorite. I made just as the recipe said and it always comes out perfectly. Thank you for giving us something different to serve for dessert.

  2. Wondering if this would work well in other pans? Cupcakes, or a bundt pan? It sounds delicious, but I’d like to be able to present it in a slightly “fancier” way than a sheet cake.
