One of the disadvantages of going some where for Thanksgiving dinner, means there are no leftovers in the house.  Namely…..NO LEFT OVER DESSERTS in the house.

Now, while that SHOULD be a good thing, my sweet tooth was calling over the weekend and I wanted a yummy simple dessert.  I quickly remembered the pie filling and recipes Lucky Leaf had sent me to try, and at the top of our list was Caramel Apple Gingerbread Cake.

You may remember some of the other fantastic desserts I’ve made with Lucky Leaf Pie filling, like Angel Food Delight and Sweetheart Cherry Cake .  Their premium pie filling is my very favorite and I love how they “think outside the pie” with many of their recipes!

This recipe is the epitome of fall and the holidays.  Every flavor in them reminds me of the season: the spices, the gingerbread, the apples, the caramel. Each element comes through in the finished cake!  Be sure to garnish the top of each serving with a big dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle with a little nutmeg.

You’ll impress your guests with this cake and they’ll have no idea how easy it was.
