Parties don’t have to end just because it gets dark earlier!
You can just feel it in the air – summer slowly coming to an end. Ease your way into autumn by making Boozy Apple Cakes. These rum cakes are obviously for the 21 and over crowd, but can easily be made for the under 21 crowd by just omitting the alcohol.
Bonus! Your entire house will smell like fall – before, during, and after – baking up these cute little cakes!
Grab your ingredients and let’s get ready to ring in autumn! Grease eight small ramekins and set aside.
Slice the apples into thin slices with a mandolin or paring knife.
Put them in a small pot.
Then add the sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Cook on medium heat until the butter and sugars have dissolved and the apples are soft and tender. If you are using the booze, this is when you add it! Cook for 10 minutes more, then remove from heat and set aside.
Let’s mix up the Betty Crocker spice cake mix!
Mix, mix, mix!
Using a ¼ cup measuring scoop, fill the bottom of the ramekins.
Add the boozy apple slice mixture on top of the batter.
Cover the apples with more batter. Continue to spread all the batter between the ramekins. Finish each with an apple slice on top. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and pop in the oven to bake.
Once done, sprinkle sugar on the top apple slice and use a kitchen torch to crystalize the sugar.
