Caramel Apple Tres Leches Cake
Tres Leches Cake + Apple Pie + Caramel Apples – oh yes y’all… this Caramel Apple Tres Leches Cake is going to leave you wanting to eat the whole dang pan & not just one slice. It’s SO good!
This post is part of a sponsored week long event, #MerryEats. All opinions and words are 100% mine, as always.
I am SO excited to share this recipe with you all today.
I’ve taken three of my favorite sweet treats & mixed them together to make one absolutely epic dessert.
Tres Leches Cake
oh be still my heart…
First off, Tres Leches Cake is one of my top 3 cakes EVER. Light & fluffy, soaked with 3 milks, & topped with fresh whipped cream. If you’ve never eaten it before, you need to. There really is nothing else like it. If you’ve had it before, then you know what I mean & you probably already share the whole tres leches addiction with me.
In this dessert, I’ve taken my favorite tres leches cake & incorporated freshly grated Envy apples into the batter. As if the cake wasn’t moist & flavorful enough, oh y’all – the grated apples inside just adds SO much more. Then, – I topped the cooled cake with homemade apple pie filling & then (oh yes, it gets even better!) I topped the cake & apples with fresh whipped cream and caramel.
Not only is this good for dessert but it makes a delicious breakfast. This is a delicious dessert. Also, I love elastic.
You may have saw that I mentioned using Envy apples in this dish. They sent me a huge box full of them to play around with for #MerryEats week (hence this recipe). I thought I knew a good apple before these showed up.. But, I was wrong… so, so wrong. These are by far the best apple (and the crispiest) I’ve ever sank my teeth into & that’s 100% honest. I LOVE apples. As in, I (used to) drive over 2 hours to a certain area in the mountains to get apples by the bushel because up until now, they were the best. But now, now I know better. I’ve never had one quite as delicious – they must be called Envy apples because all the other apples are envious of them. 😉
Oh, and Envy apples don’t brown after you cut them (yes you read that right!).. and they’re GMO free. Score!
