  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp honey (15ml)
apple filling
  • 2+1/2 cups peeled and diced apples (1 lbs / 453g)
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar (100g)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (15ml)
  • 2 tbsp butter (28g)
apple cake
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (360g)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1+1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup oil (240ml)
  • 1 cup brown sugar (200g)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (191g)
  • 2 vanilla beans* (or 2 tsp pure vanilla extract)
  • 3 large eggs
caramel buttercream frosting
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature (226g)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted (240g)
  • 2 vanilla beans* (or 2 tsp pure vanilla extract)
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce (160g)
  • 1-2 apples for decoration if desired
Instructions
  1. Caramel sauce: In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar, heavy cream, salt, and honey and bring over medium heat to a boil. Cook for about 10 minutes until it has thickened up and coats the back of a spoon but is still liquid. Whisk continuously. Test the caramel down the side of the saucepan to get the right thickness. The caramel should be thick enough to drip and doesn't run down like water. But don't cook it too long that it is not too stiff to pour it on top of the cake when it is cool. The caramel will thicken as it cools. Remove saucepan from the heat. With a heatproof cup scoop out 1/2 cup of caramel sauce and transfer to a small bowl and let cool to room temperature (you need this for the buttercream later). Cover saucepan and let stand overnight at room temperature until your cake is ready for decoration. Read the blog post above about cooking caramel. Also, watch 90 sec. video.
  2. Apple filling: Place all ingredients in a large saucepan and bring over medium heat to a boil. Cook for 8-10 minutes until the apples are soft. Stir constantly. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. 
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C. Line the bottom and the sides of two 8" (20cm) baking pans with parchment paper. Set aside.
