So, here's the scoop. I go to ALDI on a weekly basis and check out all the grocery aisles for new products to use in my recipes. My mission was to come up with a delectable Caramel Apple Toffee Cake and incorporate it into a poke cake, because poke cakes are the bomb!
More than that, I was dying to use a new ingredient that I found in the ALDI candy aisle and it involved using these deliciously, dreamy Moser Roth Mike Toffee Crunch Bars. Is that soooo wrong? I just can't help myself! You might get slightly addicted to them. (Don't say I didn't tell you so!) There are 5 mini bars in each pack, but I think it's a trick because eating just one bar is just a teaser.
I'm always looking for shortcuts, new finds and cutting costs, because let's face it, we like baking easy around here!
I love to try new foods AND the more money we don't spend on groceries, the happier we are, right? When I go to Aldi, it happens. I get all giddy and my eyes sort of pop out of my head! Some of my favorite brands at ALDI are Baker's Corner, Clancy's and Simply Nature.
How to Make Caramel Apple Toffee Cake
Ok, so you want to make this easy and delish recipe!! We don't blame you! You'll definitely want to dive into this caramel apple poke cake! It's topped with fluffy whipped cream and rich, decadent milk chocolate and toffee crunch bits.
First, bake a yellow cake, as directed on the box using a 9x13 pan, using the ingredients it calls for.
While the cake is baking, peel 4-6 apples and dice them up. Add 2 tablespoons brown sugar and microwave for 3 -4 minutes. Then add in ½ cup of caramel to those microwaved apples and set aside.
After your cake has baked, poke holes with a wood spoon handle. That way the gooey caramel sauce to ooze in and soak up that cake. Add the caramel apple mixture on top and spread evenly and transfer to your fridge covered.
Whip up some fresh whipped cream topping and and sprinkle those chopped chocolate toffee bits on top and get ready for a layered Caramel Apple Toffee Cake "Explosion of Yumminess" in your mouth!
Seriously! So be warned...you might eat the whole pan of this Caramel Apple Toffee Cake love, if you're not careful! 🙂
ALDI also has organic fruits as well, so you could use organic apples if you wish in this recipe. Either way, it will be amazing and luscious!

I'm a loyal Aldi shopper and so is my mom. We've even shopped at the Aldi in Stuttgart, Germany. This Apple Caramel Toffee Cake looks so scrumptious. This recipe looks so easy too! Since apples are in season and who doesn't like chocolate? This is a no brainer. Can't wait to start baking!
