I am almost embarrassed to post this because it was just soooo simple. But, it is really nice to be able to whip up something a little special without much fuss sometimes. Because it turned out so nice, I thought I might as well share it. As I discussed last week in my Banana Peanut Butter Bread blog post; my husband had a week off from work; which meant that I didn’t have to pack him a lunch; which meant, I had extra apples in the house. For him, it was a week of fast food fun, while he and my youngest son be-bopped around from park to park. All fine and dandy, but it left me to worry about excess fruit spoiling. I dont know why I ever worried. I am the QUEEN of making the most of our food on hand. ~As you can see.
I had such mixed emotions about posting this because its JUST a doctored up cake mix. I deleted it twice before deciding to forge ahead! What was I worried about? This is a perfect way to use up excess apples! The brown sugar crumble on top just added to the carmel apple theme without making it overly sticky. Try a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of this carmel apple cake while still warm for country perfection. So tell me. How do you doctor up your cake mixes?
