Caramel Apple Gingerbread

     Here is another great 3 ingredient recipe, well maybe a couple more if you count the egg and water needed for the gingerbread.  Make the gingerbread according to package directions, dump in the can of apple pie filling, mix and bake.  The result is a spicy, pudding like cake that soothes on the way down and reminds you of the holidays.  I baked this in my 10 inch oven with 10 coals in a circle around the bottom and 16-18 on the lid.  Drizzle some ready made caramel sauce over the top and your guests will be singing your praises and pleading for more.  This nifty recipe is from the Lucky Leaf company website. 

Caramel Apple Gingerbread
1 package (14.5-ounce) gingerbread mix
1 can (21 oz.) apple pie filling
1/4 cup caramel-flavored ice cream topping
Whipped topping

     Lightly oil or spray a 10 inch dutch oven.  Line with parchment paper.
     In a large mixing bowl prepare gingerbread mix according to package directions.  Fold the apple pie filling into the batter.
     Spread batter into prepared dutch oven.  Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Let cool for about 20 minutes before removing from oven.
     Serve cake with caramel and whipped topping.  Makes 8 servings.

Just the right size for a 10 inch oven

Thirty minutes later

Moist, dense cake falls as it cools

Eat it with a spoon so you won't miss a drop

  1. I made this tonight. It was really good. I think the caramel sauces was too much though. Thanks.
