The sweet taste of butterscotch goes so well with tart apples that this just might be the best comfort dessert ever!
Apples, butterscotch, nuts and brown sugar served over a buttery sweet cake may be my all-time favorite dessert. When I make this treat, the awesome aroma of sweetened apples fills the whole house. Before the cake even comes out of the oven, my family starts asking when they can have a slice.
Beautiful tart apples and a few other simple ingredients go into making this wonderful cake.
It only takes a few minutes to chop the apples and to mix them with the butterscotch, brown sugar and nuts. I put the sweet apple mixture in the bottom of the pan and top it with the cake batter.
As the cake bakes up to a lovely golden brown, my house is filled with the comforting, sweet smell of fall. When I turn the cake out onto a serving plate, the warm and gooey butterscotch apple mixture is revealed.
I like to serve this cake warm. It’s great by itself. Also try slices with whipped cream or ice cream and a drizzle of butterscotch sundae syrup.
