Apple and caramel pound cake
Wow to this apple and caramel pound cake!
I have not used my bundt pan in for ever. I am so glad I did. This apple and caramel pound cake turned delicious.
What I also like about Fat Toad Farm, is that it is a family-run goat dairy farm in central Vermont. The process of making this caramel is somewhat different. Rather than saturating their caramel sauce with sugar, they rely in the process of caramelization to obtain the no so sweet flavor. The caramel is also heated and hand-stir to obtain the perfect thickness.
This caramel sauce is truly la crème de la crème. I have never tried such high quality caramel sauce before. The perfect sweetness, thickness and flavor.
For this apple and caramel pound cake I used the cinnamon flavor caramel, but you can use any other flavor of your choice.
I also used two medium size apples but I think you can use more if you like. I actually wish I did. Next time I will use at least four apples.
Her can see some Fat Toad Farm’s Holiday Gift Collection a selection of their unique and delicious goat’s milk caramel flavors – including our NEW Holiday Limited Edition Irish Whiskey Cream Caramel – You can also visit their store for other options.
I think the apple and caramel cake was truly a winner. My family was eating it like there was no tomorrow. I still have some cake leftover. I am sure I will be eating at least two pieces today.
Once your pound cake cools down completely you can decorated and frost it with the cream cheese mixture followed by the caramel and chopped walnuts. You can add more of the caramel and walnuts if you like. I store my pound cake on a cake stand for up to two days.
