Caramel Apple Pound Cake with Cream Cheese Icing and Pecan Topping

This sinfully rich and delicious apple pound cake is wonderful as a breakfast treat or after-dinner dessert. We followed the recipe almost as written, though made a few substitutions to suit our preferred ingredients and baking style.

The original recipe comes from Entertain & Celebrate Autumn 2018 by Hoffman Media. These seasonal magazines are always worth a look.

This cakes offers all kind of gooey goodness. It should be pointed out that while we are sharing the final product, delectable treats like this take time, prep work, and are bound to turn a part of your kitchen into a mess.

To streamline your baking/cooking process, follow the rule of mise en place, or "everything in its place." This was drummed into me time and time again at culinary school, and I'm grateful because it makes a big difference when working in the kitchen. It means to have your ingredients measured, cut, chopped, peeled, ground (insert prep verb here) before you start on the recipe. It also means you prepare any pans, utensils, or other tools ahead of time. This way, you aren't scrambling around your kitchen to find what you need after you've started. While it may seem like this takes more time, you will save time in the end and ensure you have everything you need.

Ready for a taste!

This begs the question: Are you a cake person or do you prefer pie?
