Salted Caramel Apple Pound Cake (And a Giveaway!)

When life gives you left-over Salted Caramel Sauce, I say make pound cake!

Salted Caramel Apple Pound Cake

With fall teasing us in the Dallas area, the temperatures are fluctuating between 100 and 80, I find myself feeling very domestic.  The cooler weather puts me in the mood to putter around the house organizing books, clearing out closets, and whipping up cozy treats in the kitchen.  Usually during this time of year I would be baking fall fruit pies, as the cooler weather seems perfect for pie, but this year I have had my fill of pie.  With all the cookbook frenzy behind me I have turned my attention to cakes.  While clearing out the refrigerator, which I am sad to admit needed some particular attention, I found a jar of homemade Salted Caramel Sauce that I had photographed for the next cookbook.  How had I forgotten it?  Even more important, what would I make with it?

Salted Caramel Apple Pound Cake

This pound cake has salted caramel in the batter, salted caramel dripping over the top, and it is all finished with a salted caramel whipped cream.  It sounds like it would be very rich and overpowering but it isn’t.  In the cake batter the salted caramel adds a subtle, nutty yet buttery flavor that compliments the sweet-tart apple bits.  The apples seem to sort of melt into the cake, but when you find a bite with apple in it you can certainly taste it.  Because I prefer pound cake served with some sweet whipped cream I decided to experiment and make a Salted Caramel Whipped Cream.  I will tell you it is good enough to eat all by itself, and it is my new go-to Thanksgiving whipped cream.  I can’t wait to try it dolloped on pumpkin pie!

Now, for the giveaway … I am so happy to be giving away not one, but TWO copies of my new cookbook, Everything Pie!  How do I get from pound cake to pie, you ask?  Well, the Salted Caramel Sauce recipe I have included in this recipe is also found in Everything Pie.  See, it fits!

How to enter:

First, comment below and tell me about your favorite fall activities.  Do you love to hunt for the perfect pumpkin in a pumpkin patch?  Trick-or-treating with the kids?  Maybe you love going to a harvest festival?  Whatever it is, tell me about it.  What can I say, I’m nosy!

Second, Tweet about this giveaway with a link back to this entry, then post a link to that tweet in the comments below.  Tweet whatever you like, and if you want to mention me (which would be lovely) my Twitter handle is @BakingBlog.

Finally, tell your friends on Facebook by sharing a link to this entry.  Just post a link back here so I can see you did.

The giveaway ends October 11, 2011 at 11 pm CST.   The winner will be selected at random and notified via email (so be sure to use a valid email address when commenting) no later than October 13, 2011.   In the event that the same person wins both books (with multiple entries it could happen) a second winner will be selected.  I am providing the books from my own personal supply.

Good luck, and now back to the cake …

Salted Caramel Apple Pound Cake     Serves 10 to 12

For the cake:
1 stick (4 ounces) butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup Salted Caramel Sauce, divided (recipe follows)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
5 eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups cake flour
1 cup whole milk
1 Granny Smith (or other firm apple) peeled, cored, and chopped

For the whipped cream:
2 tablespoons Salted Caramel Sauce
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Heat the oven to 325 F and spray a 10 to 15 cup bundt or ring pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In the work bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream together the butter and 1/2 cup of the salted caramel sauce until well combined.  Add the sugar and brown sugar and beat until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

Add the eggs, one at a time, to the butter mixture, beating for 2 minutes after adding each egg.  Once all the eggs are added stir in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl sift together the cinnamon, cardamom, baking soda, baking powder, salt, all-purpose flour, and cake flour.  Alternately add the flour mixture and milk into the butter, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour.  Fold in the apple pieces.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until the cake springs back in the center when gently pressed.  Watch the cake carefully starting at the 45 minute mark, and do not over-bake.

Allow the cake to cool for 15 minutes in the pan then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.  Once cool pour the reserved caramel over the top, allowing it to drip naturally down the sides.

For the whipped cream combine the salted caramel, powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream in a medium bowl.  Whip until the mixture forms medium peaks.

Serve the cake with a generous scoop of the whipped cream.  Enjoy!

Salted Caramel Sauce     Yield about 2 cups

1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
3/4 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

Salted Caramel Apple Pound CakeSalted Caramel Apple Pound CakeSalted Caramel Apple Pound Cake

In a medium saucepan with deep sides add the sugar, water, and corn syrup.  Place the pot over medium heat and, swirling but never stirring, bring the mixture to a boil.  Brush the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush if any sugar crystals cling to the edge of the pot.

Allow the mixture to boil until it is a deep amber color and the sugar smells like dark caramel, about 6 minutes.

Salted Caramel Apple Pound Cake

Remove the pot from the heat and, very carefully as it will bubble up, whisk in the heavy cream, butter, and salt.  Once the butter is melted let the caramel cool to room temperature.  Left-overs can be stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to a month.

    This pound cake sounds divine. And since Yom Kippur is this weekend and we’re right in the middle of the high holidays which are all about apples, I can’t think of a better dessert.

    As for the fall, I love going pumpkin hunting with the family. And of course trick or treating with my son who’s finally old enough to get it (which of course means more candy for me. ;-))

  • thisoldbroad

    Love this cake. I tweeted the giveaway because I’m a major pie person. Can’t wait to see the cookbook.

    You asked about personal Halloween experiences. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and you’d know that by my house-cats, ravens and sinister decor this month–and other months.

    I love to go to Half Moon Bay-pumpkin capitol of the world–the whole town is decked out for the holiday! Great shop windows and pumpkin patches.

    Have a great holiday

    Kelly, this pound cake sounds beyond wonderful. Salted caramel turns everything it touches to gold!

    Congratulations on your book! That is definitely one I need in my kitchen because I am irrationally scared of making pies and am determined to overcome that.

    As for favorite fall activities – well, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. We usually host a Halloween party for my kids’ friends and all of us get dressed up. Often my parents are here to visit at that time and they get right into the spirit. Last year they dressed up as ketchup and mustard. They were the hit of the party!

    my favorite thing to do in the fall is to literally feel the season change. it takes a while for us to settle in to fall (being in houston) but feeling the air getting colder and the mornings getting darker is satisfying. and baking with pumpkin and apples, duhhhh.

  • Chris

    I would LOVE this book! In (older) circles, I was known as the pie lady…..but haven’t baked a pie in over two years. I need a kick in the pants!

I just loved going up there, grabbing a coffee and walking through the small town and into some trails to see the beautiful foliage.

    Love fresh, crisp Macintosh apples. Had my first cider donut of the season last week. Can’t wait for more! The leaves are just starting to turn. Fall in Vermont is wonderful.

    Every fall we go to the local apple festival (10′ apple pie!) I also love to go to the apple orchards to pick straight from the tree – and maybe even take in a corn maze

    I tried to make the caramel sauce tonight. I want to make the cake, but since I’m 6 1/2 months pregnant, I thought I’d make the caramel sauce tonight and then the cake tomorrow. Anywho, I got the sugar to a nice dark brown caramel, removed it from the heat, and put in the cream and butter. I measured out the salt and them added it. I think I was moving too slow because when I started to whisk things together the caramel was hardening. I managed to stick with it and whisk for a while, and got some caramel sauce which tastes really good. However, I think that I only got about 1 or so cup as opposed to two. Any suggestions on how I can make this better or thoughts on what happened? Thanks!

    I’ve made this cake three times this week! It’s delicious and surprisingly easy. I do find that it takes longer than 6 minutes to get the amber colour, but that’s no doubt due to variations in cooktops and pans (I use Le Creuset on induction). I also reduced the sea salt to 1 tsp after the first cake. Again, there seems to be variety between salts in terms of grain size. Love the website and the recipes!

    Yummy :-).

    Fall activites: Working the last time in the Garden before the winter starts. Enjoying the sun. Make long walks and after it a hot chocolate.

    This recipe looks fabulous! Knew I wanted to make it from the minute I saw it, in fact, it’s going to make an appearance at Thanksgiving this year. I do have a question though -with having a million things going on Thanksgiving day, could the whipped cream be made up the night before and still be whipped cream? Thanks in advance for the help.
