Apple season has arrived! I received my first batch of CSA apples today and I’m so excited. I love apples and openly admit that I buy them year round. I can’t help myself; I use them in fresh juice, smoothies, as snacks, and in both savory and sweet recipes. I’ve made them into muffins, doughnuts, fruit leather, you name it. And this caramel apple poundcake is the latest addition to my apple recipe collection. It has all of the qualities I love in a good poundcake- it’s sweet, eggy and dense but soft. It has apples in every slice. And it’s covered in a rich, creamy caramel sauce that keeps the cake moist and flavorful.
I used granny smith apples in the recipe because I like the slight tartness they bring to the cake. But feel free to use your favorite apples and experiment. I only used one apple in the cake but you could probably add a second one to create layers of apple and cake. The caramel has a pinch of salt but not enough for me to call it salted caramel sauce. Feel free to ramp up the salt just a bit for more of a kick!
