It’s Fall!! It’s Fall!!  IT’S FALL!!!!!!!!

Can you tell I love Fall?  Everything about Fall is just amazing!!  Crisp evening breezes that carry just a whiff of burning leaves.  Summer showers are replaced with orange and red leaves falling.  Scarves and boots come out.  Quilts are snuggled on the foot of everyone’s bed.  And most of all the comfort foods come out to play.  Fall brings warm soups, hearty chilis, filling casseroles, slow cooker meals that fill your home with the delicious aroma of dinner and the desserts!  Fall desserts are the best, everything is made with warming spices like cinnamon, caramel drizzles over everything and pumpkin and apples go into everything!!  No wonder Fall is my favorite!

Today I am making this super easy yet stunning and delicious Spiced Caramel Apple Poke Cake.  My grandma makes an amazing spice cake and it is one of my favorites!!  I am using a boxed spice cake here because it makes my life easier and it is still delicious!

This cake could not be simpler! The spice cake is poked allowing butterscotch pudding to make an incredible filling.  Warm cinnamon fried apples top the cake before getting drizzled with caramel.  It tastes like a big bite of Fall!


You can easily use any flavor cake mix you like, white cake mix, yellow cake mix would be wonderful!

 Also if you are in a real time crunch you can use canned apple filling for the topping

Speaking of crunch feel free to add some pecans or walnuts to the top!
