Hey Folks! Jackie here from The Seaside Baker, and I am back with a breakfast cake that is perfect for those chilly Fall mornings.
Living in Southern California definitely has its advantages, but for someone who love the seasons, it also has it drawbacks. After having lived in Switzerland for many years, I long for cold mornings and the visible changes of the seasons.
Love it! Pin It to your Dessert Board on Pinterest and SAVE it!

In order to get into the Fall/holiday mood, I actually have to do it manually. I light my holiday scented candle and turn on my Christmas music.
Yes, even in August I do this. There’s just something about the holidays that gets me in a good mood and my creative juices flowing!
I clearly have passed this onto my children as well as their mood can be manipulate with the perfect scent as well.
On morning when I have a bit of extra time, I try to make a nice breakfast. It is really hard to wake up in a bad mood when you smell sweet cinnamon apples slowly baking into a brown sugar crusted buttery cake.
This Caramel Apple Cake is a sure way to get everyone out of bed with a smile on their face!
This cake can be also served as a dessert. Eat as is with a decadent drizzle of caramel, or top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delicious sundae a la mode.
This time of year I love baking with cinnamon and apples. For more recipes, check out my Fresh Apple Bundt Cake (where I talk again about how we use our senses), Apple Pie Sugar Cookie Bars, and Baked Apple Crisp.
