Good morning guys! Or night! Or whenever you’re reading!

Hope all is well! I also hope you’re in the mood for apples! And caramel! And cake!

It’s that time of year. You know, the time of year when we’re all thinking about entertaining! So many holidays and dinners and football games!

Today I’ve got a sweet fall-inspired treat that you can whip up in minutes! So if you have unexpected guests or if you just have too many other things going on, you can still have a fabulous dessert!

One of my favorite tricks is to keep Sara Lee All-Butter Pound Cake in the freezer. There are so many ways you can dress up the delicious pound cake to make it uniquely yours.

For this recipes, I took a couple apples which we all have on hand this time of year and cooked them with some butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon until they were soft and delicious. I scooped some of that onto the sliced Sara Lee All-Butter Pound Cake and then drizzled caramel sauce over top. Oh, and I had to top it with whipped cream too! Obviously.

Perfect dessert! And ready in less than 20 minutes!
