Apple Cake with Butterscotch Sauce
This sweet treat is so incredibly moist. It practically melts in your mouth. I love the chunks of fresh apples sprinkled throughout.
I used Gala apples in the recipe, but feel free to use whatever apples are plentiful in your home. My daughter loves Gala apples so we always keep a bag of them in the fridge for a quick, healthy snack.
You don’t even need a special occasion to make Apple Cake with Butterscotch Sauce. Do it just because. I enjoy surprising my family with sweets after a meal.

How to Make Apple Cake with Butterscotch Sauce
The first thing you’ll do is make the Apple Cake part of the recipe.
Grease a 9×13 baking pan and set it aside.
In a large bowl, stir together sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla, flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and apples. Pour the batter into the baking pan.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
When the cake is nearly done baking, start making the Butterscotch Sauce. Add heavy cream, brown sugar and butter to a saucepan over medium low heat. Boil for 4 minutes. Pour sauce over the baked cake.
I cut the cake into pieces and poured the sauce over the individual pieces. I thought it would be less messy that way.
