Ingredients Guide for Salted Caramel Apple Crumble Cake Recipe

  • Ingredients Quality: Use fresh ingredients to enhance the flavour of the cake. I used all fresh ingredients, and the the flavour was rocking.
  • Measurements: Measuring ingredients in the right proportion is the most essential part of the recipe. If anything is incorrectly measured, while following recipe, the cake’s texture will spoil because of inaccuracy and the out will not be moist caramel apple cake.
  • Preferably, use tart apples like Granny Smith for a balanced flavour profile .


Baking Tips for Salted Caramel Apple Crumble Cake Recipe


  • The most important part is to check that are all ingredients at room temperature. If not, proper batter mixing will not be possible, resulting in a complex and unrised sponge.
  • Always make sure that you don’t keep cake batter. If the same you do so, then your cake will be densely textured. It will lose a spongy texture.
  • If you line the cake pans with parchment paper, it will be easier for you to remove the cake after baking for easy removal.

Salted Caramel:

  • When you are preparing salted caramel, stir continuously water and sugar until it melts so that you may avoid burning.
