Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Salted Caramel Apple Poke Cake

IT Guy loves, loves, LOVES anything apple. If we’re sharing a dessert in a restaurant, I’m going for the chocolate and he’ll pick apple every time. Me? I’m just “meh” about apple. But I have to say that not only did IT Guy totally enjoy this, I found it pretty tasty, too! And this is so easy! I think I could even teach IT Guy make it....HA!

Salted Caramel Apple Poke Cake
1 yellow cake mix ~ made according to the box direction in a 9x13 inch pan
1 can apple pie filling
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 nutmeg
1 container salted caramel cake frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.
Make and bake cake according to direction for 9x13 cake.
Combine nutmeg and cinnamon into sweetened condensed milk.
When cake is done, poke holes all over with the handle of a wooden spoon.
Pour sweetened condensed milk mixture in the holes.
Pour apple pie filling onto a large cutting board and dice apples with a large knife.
Spread diced apples over the cake.
Heat caramel frosting for a few seconds in the microwave. Stir to smooth. Heat for another few seconds until frosting is pourable.
Pour frosting over cake and spread to edges.
Cool cake then serve!

Here's what you need!

Mix up your cake. I made two 
small ones instead of a 9x13.

Stir the cinnamon and nutmeg into 
the sweetened condensed milk. I just added it right to the can and stirred it.

Bake the cake then poke holes 
in it while it's still warm.

Pour the sweetened condensed 
milk mixture into the holes.

Dice the apples.

Spread the apples over the cake.

Warm the frosting, stir until 
smooth then pour over the cake.

Allow to cool then enjoy!!
