A crisp topping with a soft cake underneath, this recipe has become our new family favorite. You need a large, deep Pyrex or glass dish for this one, either round or rectangular.

Ingredients

Serves 10-12


• 4 large Macintosh apples, peeled, cored, and quartered

• 4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and quartered

CAKE BATTER
  • • ¾ cup oil
  • • 1½ cups sugar
  • • 4 eggs
  • • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • • 1½ cups flour
  • • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • • ¼ tsp salt
  • • ½ cup caramel-flavored chips

CARAMEL SAUCE
  • • ¼ cup pareve whipping cream
  • • ½ cup oil
  • • 1 cup brown sugar



 
Preparation

Preheat oven to 325°F (170°C). Prepare a 9x13-inch (20x30-cm) Pyrex baking dish or a large round 10-inch (26-cm) Pyrex dish. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to avoid spillage.

In a large bowl, mix the oil and sugar, then add the eggs and vanilla. Fold in flour, baking powder, and salt and mix to create a very thick batter. Add caramel chips and mix again. Set aside.

Place caramel sauce ingredients in a saucepan and stir over medium heat until they're just beginning to bubble, stirring constantly to prevent the sugar from burning.

Slice apples in the food processor so you have fine slices. Place in a large bowl. Add caramel sauce and toss until evenly coated. Transfer to the baking dish. Pour cake batter over the apples, covering them completely. Bake for 60-70 minutes, until the top is set in the center.
