Caramel Apple Mousse Cake is layers of apple cake and creamy caramel mousse. This apple dessert is perfect for fall!
Last weekend my friend and her kids came to town. She tries to come here in the fall so we can visit our favorite apple orchard. Last year the weather was cold and this year it was rainy.
Luckily we found a couple of hours in the afternoon, between rain showers to visit, and yes we were wearing our mud boots! We got together Friday night for coffee and I brought the Caramel Apple Mousse Cake.
The cake is a spice cake with apples in it. I put it into 2 round cake pans. While they were baking, I made the caramel mousse filling and toasted the pecans. After allowing the cakes to cool, cut them in half (I actually waited until the next day).
The cake is really moist and it split when I was trying to layer the cake. It doesn’t matter though because the layers are held together with the caramel mousse. Spread 1/4 of the caramel mousse on each of the 4 layers.
Spread caramel over the top layer of mousse and allow it to drip down the sides. Top the cake with toasted pecans.
Cut a big slice. The caramel mousse holds the layers together.
Enjoy the Caramel Apple Mousse Cake with a cup of coffee. There’s nothing like apple desserts in the fall!
Love apple desserts? Here are a few more that I’ve made this fall:
- These apple bars are easy to make with a cake mix crust! This is my first of many apple recipes this fall.
- A dessert in a jar is so much fun and is a great fall party idea. This Caramel Apple In A Jar can even be given as a gift in a jar!
- There are so many apple recipes to love! How about Cinnamon Buttermilk Caramel Syrup for fall apples?
