Caramel Apple Poke Cake
Poke cakes make for a super easy and delish dessert. We normally make poke cakes in the summer, our Boston Cream Poke Cake has been a huge hit. Since I had a few cake mixes and apple pie filling on hand, a poke cake was in order. I spotted some easy Pillsbury Caramel frosting at Target while school shopping last week. I knew it would make for a perfect frosting on top of this apple yumminess.
I was spot on. I heated the frosting for just a few minutes and it was perfectly pourable. I served this cake up for dessert on Wednesday evening and everyone really liked it. The hubby even enjoyed seconds. The flavors of fall in a poke cake…perfect.
The layers of apple and caramel were perfect. Not too much apple. not too much caramel.
This recipe is so super simple since I used store bought cake mix, canned frosting, and also canned apple pie filling. You could also use Homemade Apple Pie Filling! It comes together in a jiffy!
