The Best Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake
- Apple Layer
- 4 apples, granny smith,peeled, cored, sliced
- 1/2 cup butter -
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp cinnamon, ground to taste
- 1 cup all-purpose flour -
- 3/4 cup sugar -
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp baking powder -
- 1/2 tsp salt -
- 1/2 cup sour cream -
- 2 large eggs
- 6 tblsp butter, unsalted, room temperature or 3/4 of a stick
- 1 tsp vanilla extract -
- butter or cooking spray for pan
Prepare your 8-9 inch round or square pan with butter or cooking spray. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Peel, core and cut apples into 1/4 - 1/2 inch slices. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add brown sugar and combine with a wooden spoon. When foaming subsides, add apple slices and cinnamon. Stir regularly for 8-10 minutes. Empty apple mixture in to prepared pan and lightly press into a level layer. Set aside.
Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl. Set aside. In a large bowl combine sugar, brown sugar, butter, sour cream, vanilla and eggs. Add flour mixture and mix until combined. Pour batter into pan on top of the apples and spread evenly. Bake until cake is golden brown and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let pan cool for 30 minutes. Take a butter knife and push in around edges to loosen the cake. Place wire rack on top of the cake pan. Holding rack tightly, flip the pan over. I usually do this over the sink. The cake usually drips a little. Then place the wire rack over a baking sheet or large plate. If any fruit sticks to the bottom of the pan just remove it and put it back on the top of cake. Place cake on serving plate and serve warm with whipped cream on top.
