When you combine the warm and cozy flavours of apples, cardamom, caramel and roasted pecans together, something called magic happens. It is also called the perfect fall cake. Yes this is happening right now people! Apple cardamom cake with caramel pecan butter frosting.
This recipe is full of little tricks that will make the cake even more moist and flavourful. By replacing butter with oil, it will help keep the cake soft and moist even if you eat it straight from the fridge. As much as I would like to warm this up, it's likely not gonna happen. It's going straight from the fridge and into my belly!
Caramel Pecan Butter Frosting
Apple cardamon cake just wouldn't be the same without the caramel pecan butter frosting. They are a perfect match made in heaven. Its gorgeous colour comes from cinnamon which is also what brings all the flavours together. The caramel and frosting is critical for layering and for decorating:
- Layering: Spread some butter frosting and caramel in between the cake layers to get that gorgeous, layered slice.
- Decorating: Use the right tools to pipe on those fancy restaurant-looking peaks. I used Wilton 6B tip to get those perfect peaks.
The icing on the cake, metaphorically speaking, is that the cinnamon and cardamom that will emanate from your oven will make your home smell absolutely incredible! Umm…yeah, I think it’s time to stop talking and get going on making this fall masterpiece!
