#FoodieFriday Apple Cake with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting

In honor of autumn, I decided to make a simple apple cake with a caramel cream cheese frosting. The recipe is simple…

1 box yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker’s gluten free)
1/4 cup softened butter
1/4 cup coconut oil (can be replaced with butter or other oil of your choosing)
3 large eggs
1 can apple pie filling
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
a splash of vanilla extract

Bake according to the package. Allow to cool for at least 10-15 minutes. While you’re waiting for your cake to cool, whip up a batch of easy caramel cream cheese frosting!

8 oz cream cheese
4 oz butter (1/4 cup/ half a stick)
2/3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsps caramel sauce/ topping

Beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Carefully beat in the powdered sugar and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Beat in the caramel sauce on high until smooth and fluffy. Spread over your cooled cake. Cut a slice and enjoy!
