Apple Cake Sundae
Welcome to Freaky Friday – Fall Edition! This is my first time participating and I am so exciting to be sharing a recipe from the fantastic blog Honey and Birch! Freaky Friday is where a bunch of bloggers are all assigned different blogs and we make a recipe from their site to share! None of us know who is assigned to our site so it ends up a fun surprise and a great way to get to know each other and our sites better!
Honey and Birch was created by Jenny and it has a whole bunch of amazing easy recipes and cocktails! She is a self-taught cook who learned to cook when she met her husband! Make sure to go check out her site, it’s really great!
Choosing a recipe to make was so hard because there were so many that sounded delicious (like the Pumpkin Pie Spice Nuts and Autumn Spiced Rum Cider Cocktail) but I eventually decided on this Apple Cake Sundae after much deliberation and wow, it was a wonderful decision!
Now this is really the ultimate fall dessert! It’s a simple apple cake topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. I loved how easy this apple cake recipe is to make and it’s a fun dessert to serve to family and friends with a cup of apple cider on the side!
Tips and tricks on this apple cake sundae recipe
- Give the cake a few minutes to cool before serving so your ice cream doesn’t immediately melt!
- It’s up to you whether or not you decide to skin your apples, I skipped that step and didn’t mind the additional texture but it’s definitely a preference.
I loved how easy this whole dessert was to make and there was quite a few servings here so I had dessert for days! I used this as a chance to try out that Halo Top Ice Cream that I kept seeing everywhere online! It was really tasty!
