TWD: Caramel Apple Cake for Fall





I am ashamed to admit that I have never tasted a fig in my entire life. This statement still holds true today. I used apples in mine as I am sure a lot of other TWD-ers did as well.



One day I will get around to baking with this with figs, but for now this was a delicious alternative.



Today's recipe was chosen by Alvarosa of Cookie Rookie. The recipe will be found in Dorie's book "Baking" or on today's date on Ursula's blog.

You can't really go wrong with caramel apple. That looks so good!

This looks like a great alternative. I am 56 tomorrow and still have not tasted a fig. I feel like I've lived a pretty well rounded life without figs.
Have a great day.

I used apples too! I didn't have the time to search for figs so I just used what I had on hand! Your cake looks great!

Looks fantastic. I could not find a fresh fig anywhere, so I skipped, but obviously apples would have been a great choice, too.

I have never tasted a fresh fig, just a few things like Fig Newtons and I had some baked in a tart once.
Your carmelized apple cake looks like a great idea!

Fresh figs are great but caramel apple looks like an amazing substitute. The top of the cake looks insane.

You just stick to your principles - even though it's kind of funny to avoid figs :o]. I know somebody who has never tasted eggs. He asks everybody what they taste like but nobody can give an answer - so he thinks he might not miss much. Thanks for baking with me this week and finding a way to adapt the cake to your preferences!
