Easy Apple Spice Cake Recipe for Fall Entertaining

Fall is one of my favorite times to entertain and have people over. I don’t know if it’s because of the cozy weather or the festive decorations, but something about it all is very warm and inviting. As a host, I always strive to make my house guests feel welcomed and comfortable by offering them something to eat and drink. So when Starbucks asked me to share a favorite fall recipe to pair with their delicious coffee, I knew I would have to search through my recipe arsenal for just the right one. I’ll admit, I’m no pastry chef but I like to treat my friends and family to homemade sweets I baked myself. I figure it’s the thought that counts anyways. (Besides, it doesn’t hurt that it leaves the house smelling ah-mazing in the process.)

When preparing what to serve my guests I keep seasonal favorites in mind. For example, one of my favorite desserts to bake in the fall is apple spice cake. It’s super easy to make and more importantly a popular favorite among family and friends. I use a recipe I found a few years ago, but if you’re pressed for time I know they also sell the ready-to-bake cake mix at the store too.

To top off the delicious spice cake I use a homemade cream cheese icing, but the true icing on the cake is the Starbucks® Caramel K-Cup® Packs coffee I picked to pair the cake with. I mean, apple spice and caramel go together like peanut butter and jelly, right? So simple. So sweet. Caramel adds just the right touch of richness to anything.
