Cake has been a part of my life for as far back as I can remember. My Mom was a cake decorator when I was younger and I discovered a few years ago that I had inerited her talent for it as well. I have not been satisfied with my jobs for a while now so I thought why not do something I love. Helping people celebrate the big moments of their lives. I can do cakes for all occasions.

Apple Fritters with Peanut Butter Caramel

I was in the mood to bake the other day and got Peanut Butter Caramel in my head. So I got up and made it! But then the hard decision...what to put it on? I went through all the chocolate options but didn't have all the ingredients on hand for brownies. I then started to think about what else does peanut butter go with? Banana's and apples! I ended up deciding on apple fritters and they were DELICIOUS!

Peanut Butter Caramel

1/2 cup Water
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Whipping Cream
1/2 cup Peanut Butter

Add water to a medium saucepan. Pour sugar in and DO NOT stir. The water will absorb the sugar on it's own. On medium high heat cook sugar until it becomes an amber color. Brush down the sides with water to prevent crystals. DO NOT STIR. Once it starts to brown you may swirl the pan to finish the cooking. Keep a close eye as it goes from no color to color very quickly. 

Meanwhile heat whipping cream in microwave for 30 seconds so it is room temp. Once your sugar has caramel color take off burner and pour in the cream slowly stirring constantly. Add peanut butter. Place back on burner and stir just until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool or serve warm. 

Apple Fritters

1 cup + 2 Tbsp Flour
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Allspice
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
3 Tbsp Melted Butter (or coconut oil)
3/4 cup Buttermilk
Oil to Fry

Heat oil to 375F. In a bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and allspice. Whisk to combine. Add melted butter and buttermilk and stir just until combined. Let sit for about 10 minutes. Using a teaspoon spoon small amount into oil. Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from oil and place on paper towel to absorbed extra grease. Move to a plate and drizzle with the caramel sauce.
