Warm Apple Spice Sheet Cake with Sweet Caramel Glaze - Each bite contains the perfect amount of shredded apples with a hint of nutmeg and cloves! Best when served warm.
Who can believe apple and pumpkin season is already upon us? I cannot. It seems just the other day we were picking fresh tomatoes straight off the vine and making a Caprese salad.
Now we are getting dressed in our fall attire - leggings, long sleeves, and boots, to go apple picking on the weekends. Now I am not complaining because we can make this warm apple spice sheet cake with sweet caramel glaze.
I am all for easy peasy desserts, and this one fits the bill to a tee. No mixer is required, and you get to pour the cake batter into a sheet pan - I'm all over this!
The only thing we are missing here is a warm latte to go with a piece of this cake. Oh, we cannot forget the ice cream, either! This sheet cake just screams, "It's Fall!". Each bite contains the perfect amount of apples; we shredded them, with a hint of nutmeg and cloves from the apple spice mix.
We haven't even talked about this glaze. You guys, this glaze.. the glaze! It's sweet, and it's full of caramel flav
ors and pure gold on this cake. I started off making a caramel sauce, then mixed in confectioners sugar to make an o
ut-of-this-world glaze. It's sweet, really sweet and rich.
Other apple desserts I think you may even like are my slow cooker bloomin' baked apples! We have them at least
once a week during the fall - so good!
We recommend serving the cake warm and with a scoop of ice, which is optional.

- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 11x17 sheet pan. Set aside.
Cream together the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, milk, and apples in a large mixing bowl.
Gently whisk together the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Pour the cake batter into the sheet pan, making sure it's even. Bake for 15 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes.
Slowly mix in the confectioners sugar and pour over the cake.
