A Simple Caramel Applesauce Crown Cake

by | Jul 17, 2012 | Marian, Our Lady of Mount Carmel | 7 comments

… to celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel!
Caramel Applesauce Crown Cake
3 eggs
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 fresh apple, grated or chopped (skin left on is okay)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Caramel sauce (optional)
Heat oven to 350˚ F. Grease and flour a bundt cake pan.  (I choose a beautiful Marian Fleur de Lis Bundt Pan for our crown cake. )   
Combine all ingredients and mix well.
Bake for approximately 45-50 minutes.  Cake is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  

Cool for 5 minutes and remove from pan.   Cool completely and then top with caramel sauce.

*This cake can also be baked in a 9×13 pan for 35-40 minutes, or 2 -9″ round layers for 30-35 minutes. 

*You can find my beautiful Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Statue here

May Our Lady of Mount Carmel bless you, and May God reward you all for your prayers, encouragement, and kindness!  I am so blessed!

    What a beautiful cake — worthy to celebrate Our Queen's day. And that statue is gorgeous! I attended a Mass this evening for the secular discalced Carmelites (of which my mother in law is one) and it was so beautiful (everything is beautiful!). The Gospel was John "woman behold your son" And "Behold your mother". In Father's homily he told us to always remember that before we ever looked at Our Holy Virgin as a mother, she was already looking at us as her child. Isn't that an awesome (truly!) thought?

    PS I hope you are resting. 🙂

    The cake is beautiful and I'm sure it tastes yummy. I will be visiting my sister-in-law who is a nun and now living at the convent mother house. I will ask that you be included in the prayers of the sisters for healing. Try to find time for rest.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
