Fall Recipe - Apple Upside Down Cake


  • 3 large golden delicious apples
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour stirred before measuring
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup milk


  1. Heat oven to 325°. Grease 9-inch round cake pan with butter or baking spray. Peel and core the apples and cut into thin wedges. Combine apple slices with brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 4 tablespoons melted butter. Arrange the apple slices in prepared baking pan.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with the sugar until light and fluffy with electric mixer. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture, alternating with the milk abd beating just until blended. Carefully spoon batter evenly over the apple slices (batter will be thick); gently spreading to cover. Bake for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  3. Immediately invert the hot cake onto cake plate and let stand for about 5 minutes. Remove the pan and serve warm or let cool to room temperature.
