How to Make Caramel Apple Poke Cake

The first step is to make up the spice cake mix. Follow the directions on the box, and bake it in a 9″x13″ pan. Spice cake mix is great because it has all those fall flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

Once the cake is done you want to let it cool 30 minutes before you poke holes on the top of the cake. I like to use the end of a wooden spoon to create the holes but you can also use an oversized, serving fork to create the holes if you prefer.

You can see in the picture how many holes I created. Basically you want a hole for each serving.

In a food processor or blender, add the apple pie filling. You want to pulse it until it makes the apple pie filling a smooth consistency.

Pour the pureed apple pie filling over the top of the cake. Use a spatula to spread it over the top and into the holes that you created.

Place the cake into the fridge for at least 2 hours to chill.

When ready to serve scoop the cool whip on top and spread to cover the top of the cake. If you prefer whipped cream you could definitely use that instead.

Then drizzle the caramel sauce all over the top of the cake.

When I serve up the Caramel Apple Poke Cake I like to add some additional caramel after I’ve cut a slice from the baking dish.
