Caramel Apple Trifle: layers of cake, caramel, cooked apples, custard, and whipped cream create the perfect fall dessert. Make it from scratch, or use store bought ingredients to make it quick and easy.
I always love to make an apple dessert for my kids on the first day of school. We have a special dinner together to hear all about their day, and it just seems right to finish it all off with an apple dessert. Read all about this year’s back to school dinner with free printables here. It’s so perfectly fall, and back to school. This year my youngest helped with this Caramel Apple Trifle.
I love serving it in mason jars for an individual dessert, but you could also make this in a large trifle bowl to feed a crowd.
This recipe could be quick and easy, or take a little longer with home made versions… it’s totally up to you. We made home made caramel, and custard, and whipped cream but you could also pick up some pre-made caramel sauce, vanilla pudding, and canned whipped cream for a quicker version that would also be really delicious.
I love this dessert for fall, and any apple lovers you know are sure to love it as well. It’s perfect for when apples are at their best. Fall is also fair season where I live. So a caramel apple trifle seems like the perfect fall dessert for more reasons than one. The apple filling is pretty easy to put together, and makes the house smell amazing! The apples are the star of this dessert, but the combination of cake, and creamy custard, and rich caramel, and a sprinkling of crunchy pecans is a pretty amazing combination.
I picked up all the ingredients at Giant Tiger. Look for their Giant Value products for great price, and great quality.
