Caramel Apple Sheet Cake

I love apples and any recipe with apples in them.  This one reminds me of caramel apples...did I mention I love caramel too????  The cake is super moist and the icing you could eat with a spoon.  Sheet cakes are great to bring to a fall party, little squares of yum!  This is so worth the work!  This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


2 cups flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 baking soda
1 t sea salt
2 t cinnamon
1 cup canola oil
2 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 t vanilla
1/2 whole milk
5 apples-peeled and shredded

Mix all of your dry ingredients together.  Add in oil, eggs, vanilla, and milk and mix until all comes together.  Now fold in the shredded apples.  Now pour cake in a parchment lined jelly roll pan, smooth top evenly and bake at 350' for 20 minutes.  Cool completely.


3 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/3 cup half and half

4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 T half and half ( this is to add to the caramel mixture once it is cooled._

In a medium non-sick pan add butter, brown sugar, half and half and cream over medium heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves.  Now bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and cool completely.  Now add caramel into your Kitchen Aid with the beater on and add 1 cup at a time of powdered sugar alternating with the 4 T half and half.  You may need more half and half to get to a spreadable icing.  Ice cake and enjoy!
