I needed a new inspiration for a coffee cake and saw this great Caramel Apple Toffee Cake from A Pumpkin and a Princess. This cake is basically easy to make. I made it half asleep on a Sunday morning, if that tells you anything. Although I did ruin the caramel sauce by putting on the stove, and then looking at that darn computer, and forgetting about it.
Needless to say, the sauce cooled and got very hard. Not exactly the consistency you need to top a cake, or anything else for that matter.
I didn’t have time to make more before I had to leave with it, so thankfully I had some Stonewall Kitchen Pumpkin Caramel Sauce and topped it with that. If I had time, I had loads of King Arthur Flour Caramel Sauce I could have used, but didn’t have time to go get it at my office. That will teach me to make sure I always have it in my kitchen…..you never know when you need it in a pinch!
I added a little cinnamon to the batter, for some reason I thought cinnamon would be perfect for this cake. I was right. The cake really tasted delicious, and the caramel toffee topping was pretty darn good as well.
The unfortunate thing for me this morning is I didn’t get to put a piece of cake aside to take a picture of. Two tiny pieces was all that was left!
I started this blog to keep a record of my recipes for my relatives and friends. My passion for cooking and all things cooking turned into a business for me. The good thing is working at something you love. The bad thing, it doesn't leave me much time to do the things I love. I try to use new recipes as much as possible as I love to see what's out there. I also love gardening and photography.
