FRESH APPLE CAKE WITH HOMEMADE CARAMEL SAUCE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup Country Crock® Spread
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups grated unpeeled Granny Smith apples (about 2 apples)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • Whipped cream or ice cream (optional)
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 4 tablespoons Country Crock® Spread

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat the Country Crock Spread with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy: gradually add the sugar, beating well. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Add apple, beating just until blended.
  3. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves; add to the Country Crock mixture and mix just until blended. Stir in the walnuts if desired.
  4. Pour into a lightly greased 13×9 inch baking pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or just until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack 10 minutes. Server with caramel sauce and if desired, whipped cream or ice cream.
  5. Cook the sugar, half and half, Country Crock Spread and salt in a small saucepan over medium-low for 5 to 7 minutes, whisking slowly until thickened. Remove from the heat and let cool before serving. (Makes 1 cup)
