By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Caramel Apple Cake might be just the dessert you are searching for. This lacto ovo vegetarian recipe serves 10 and costs 93 cents per serving. One portion of this dish contains roughly 8g of protein, 22g of fat, and a total of 625 calories. Only a few people made this recipe, and 1 would say it hit the spot. If you have confectioner's sugar, sugar, eggs, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly roughly 45 minutes. It can be enjoyed any time, but it is especially good for Halloween. It is brought to you by Foodista. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 23%. This score is not so excellent. Spiced Rum Apple Cake with Apple Cider Caramel Glaze, Caramelized Apple Cake – Classic combination of apple & caramel, and Caramel Apple Cake are very similar to this recipe.

Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port are my top picks for Caramel Apple Cake. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. You could try NV Solera Cream Sherry. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 17 dollars per bottle.

NV Solera Cream Sherry

The Solera Cream Sherry has a brilliant amber and deep copper hue. With butterscotch and pecan aromas, the sweet salted nut and brown spice aromas carry a complex caramel accent. A sweet entry leads to a rounded, lush, moderately full-bodied palate with a lengthy, flavorful finish.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and lightly spray a bundt or tube pan with nonstick cooking spray. In the bowl of a mixer, or large bowl, combine the oil, sugar and eggs. Add the apple and walnuts and beat moderately to slightly crush the apple pieces. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, soda, baking powder and baking soda and slowly add the flour mixture into the apple mixture. Mix, pausing to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl. Add the vanilla and continue to mix until well incorporated. Pour batter into pan and bake on the center rack until a toothpick inserted in the deepest section comes out clean about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely. In a small saucepan, melt the butter, brown sugar and salt over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Let the mixture come to a boil and carefully add the milk, stir to combine. Boil for 2 minutes, remove from heat, and let cool until just warm to the touch. Whisk in the confectioners sugar, 1 Tb at a time, until a thicker, glaze consistency is reached. With the cake on a wire rack placed over a piece of parchment paper, slowly pour the glaze on top, letting it run down the sides and middle. Allow glaze to cool and harden slightly before serving.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Store brown sugar in an air-tight container to avoid hardening. If your brown sugar still gets too hard to use, you can use one of these techniques to soften it.

  • If a recipe doesn't specify whether you should use light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, just use whatever you have on hand or prefer. The difference is that dark brown sugar has more molasses and thus a stronger flavor.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

Green Tips

  • Apples are at the top of the so-called "dirty dozen" so be sure to buy organic apples (and applesauce, apple juice, etc.) if you are concerned about pesticide residues in your food.

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
