Happy Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel!
Our family is celebrating with a simple Caramel Applesauce Crown Cake in honor of Our Lady baked in a beautiful Marian Fleur de Lis Cake Pan.
Caramel Applesauce Crown Cake
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 fresh apple, grated or chopped (skin left on is okay)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Caramel sauce (optional)
Heat oven to 350˚ F. Grease and flour a bundt cake pan. (I choose a beautiful Marian Fleur de Lis Bundt Pan for our crown cake. )
Combine all ingredients and mix well.
Bake for approximately 45-50 minutes. Cake is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool for 5 minutes and remove from pan. Cool completely and then top with caramel sauce.
*This cake can also be baked in a 9x13 pan for 35-40 minutes, or 2 -9" round layers for 30-35 minutes.
*You can find the beautiful Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Statue here.
