Course Dessert
Servings 6


  • 6 whiskey tumblers or shot glasses

For the cake

  • 1 box Kathi Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 7 oz butter 200g
  • 3/4 tbsp water

For the carmelized apples

  • 4 medium-sized apples
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream 200 g
  • 16.8 oz milk 500 ml
  • 1 packet instant vanilla pudding


  • Prepare Kathi's Chocolate Cake Mix as directed. Spread dough onto a well greased and floured cookie sheet and bake for about 25-30 minutes at 350° F until toothpick comes out clean. (Baking times may vary depending on oven type and altitude.)
  • Place on cooling rack. Let sit for about 50 minutes and cool to room temperature.
  • Prepare the instant vanilla pudding as directed and let it cool to room temperature.
  • Rinse the apples before peeling, halve them lengthwise, remove the core and slice. Reserving 6 intact slices, cut the remaining apple slices into small cubes.
  • Melt sugar and butter in a pan until the sugar starts turning brown. Now caramelize the cubed apples.
  • Press a whiskey glass onto cooled cake layer, cutting out 12 circles. Place 1 circle in each glass. Top with 2 tbsp of the warm caramelized apples and a layer of pudding. Repeat the layers (cake, fruit, pudding) once more.
  • Beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form and spread it equally over all 12 glasses.
  • Cut the remaining sheet cake in pieces, put it on top of the whipped cream and place the apple slices decoratively on top.
