This Caramel Apple Pie Poke Cake is Fall on a plate. Apples, cinnamon, caramel, and toffee. It is one of my favorite poke cakes. Like all of my other poke cakes, this cake is super easy to make and tastes delicious! This is a great dessert for a potluck, Fall festival, or party. I’ve even made this for Thanksgiving. Everyone LOVES it!

How to Make Apple Pie Poke Cake

This Caramel Apple Pie Poke Cake starts with my Apple Pie Cake recipe. Bake the cake and as soon as it comes out of the oven, poke holes in it and pour a condensed milk and caramel mixture on top. Once the cake cools, top it with cool whip and toffee bits.

  • Do NOT make the cake according to the package directions. You are only going to use the dry cake mix.
  • I used a box of yellow cake mix. This would also be good with a spice cake mix or butter pecan cake mix.
  • What can I use instead of cool whip? You can substitute fresh whipped cream for the cool whip on this cake. Whip 1-1/2 cups heavy cream with 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
  • I used a bag of Heath Bar toffee bits for the topping.
  • Can I make Apple Pie Poke Cake in advance? The cake can be made several days in advance and stored in the refrigerator. It actually gets better as it sits in the fridge.

  1. This recipe was amazing! I think the only thing I would do differently would be to half the amount of condensed milk and caramel sauce. I thought it made it too gooey and runny. Other than that, this was AMAZING and it is definitely on my list of "keepers"

  2. This recipe is fantastic! I have now made it two times for two different activities in the same week…everyone really loved it…thank you for sharing! The second time I made it I did candied pecan pieces instead of toffee bits. Your recipe is awesome!

    1. Thanks for the quick response. That's what I did – just got the condensed milk and caramel poured over it!! Can't wait to have it Thanksgiving!!
