This caramel apple cheesecake it’s the most delicious and indulgent dessert ever! Soft apples cooked with caramel and swirled into the creamiest of cheesecakes. Make a large batch because everyone will ask for seconds.

Oh my, this cheesecake. This is the type of cheesecake you take to every party and gathering and potluck and celebration because it’s the type of cheesecake that’s so good you just need to share it with the world.

I mean, this is super creamy, super flavorful, studded with soft caramel apple pieces and topped with a delicious and indulgent caramel apple sauce that’s almost too good to be true.

It’s also super eways to make and honestly pretty much foolproof. I was even thinking about calling this the magical cheesecake, that’s how good it is.

How to make the caramel apple topping and filling

One of the things that make this caramel apple cheesecake so good (apart from the fact that’s so easy!) is the caramel apple topping. The apples get soft and buttery and then coated and simmered in caramel sauce and heavy cream.

However making the sauce is super easy! Melt some butter into a large pan, add a couple apples cut into small pieces and cook until soft. Then add a generous amount of caramel and a splash of heavy cream and bring to a gentle simmer. The caramel gets infused with the apple and the apple soaks all the caramel flavor. DELICIOUS!

I like to bake a large batch and keep it refrigerated. It’s not only a great cheesecake filling and topping but also delicious served over ice cream!

Making a creamy caramel apple cheesecake

I love love love how creamy this cheesecake is! It’s airy and light and almost melts in your mouth. There are a lot of different ways to make cheesecake and each one results in different textures (some prefer a dense cheesecake, others prefer light and airy).

If you want a dense cheesecake then you need to mix until your ingredients are barely incorporated. However if you want a super easy cheesecake like this one you need to beat our ingredients until fluffy.

I add almost all the ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on medium speed for around 7 minutes, that way you incorporate a ton of air to your mix.
