Cadence Helme

This is a super easy, semi-home made type of cake that I find is perfect for this time of year. With pumpkin and apples being used, two of fall's essential flavors are sealed inside this delicious, decadent dessert.

How to Make Spiced Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Grease and flour one 9" cake pan - this cake is NOT a double layer cake but just a single layer- and preheat oven to 350 degrees. .
  • 2Place butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a sauce pan and bring ingredients to a boil and allow to continue boiling for 30 seconds. Remove from heat and spread evenly over the bottom of your cake pan
  • 3Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples. Sprinkle over your caramel evenly. Move on to mixing the cake.
  • 4Mix ALL cake ingredients together until thoroughly moistened. A few small lumps are all right, but no really large ones. :D The batter will be quite thick.
  • 5Spread batter over apples evenly, and place in oven. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and cake springs back after touched.
  • 6Let cool for 15 minutes or so, then loosen cake from the sides of the pan by sliding a butter knife along the edges. Tip over onto a plate and Enjoy!
    For further enjoyment, serve with freshly whipped cream spiced with a hint of cinnamon, sugar and vanilla and some caramel sauce for drizzling!
