Warm Apple Cake with Caramel Sauce and Toasted Walnuts
Here's a new temptation to add to my expanding collection of apple desserts. It is a very straight forward recipe for a very good apple cake that incorporates not only diced apples but grated apples as well, which helps to make it very moist and delicious. My favorite caramel sauce makes another appearance here as well as it inevitably does with most of my apple desserts. The toasted walnuts may just look like an appropriate garnish here but they bring a lot of flavour and texture to this party and definitely should not be left out.

With so many nut allergy considerations these days, adding toasted nuts as a garnish and leaving them out of the cake altogether is a good option to serve both those with and without nut allergies. In terms of flavor, I prefer to add them to the desert this way but if you wish, you may, of course, add them to the cake batter.

Hi Barry.
I've tried this recipe a couple of times and I think I'm doing something wrong as the texture is dense, not like your photo. Wondering if I'm putting in too much apple. Approx how many cups do the grated & diced apples amount to? Also, the grated apples are very wet - is that as it should be?

Thanks.

Odd. Others have had good sucess with this recipe. It could be that your apples are extra juicy. Make sure your baking powder and soda are fresh too. I'd say a cup or so of grated apple should be enough. A couple of cups of diced apple should do it. Hope this helped. Barry.
