Ingredients

-1/2 cup butter

-1/2 cup packed brown sugar

-2 large apples, peeled and thinly sliced

-1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping

-1 cup all-purpose flour

-1 teaspoon baking powder

-1/4 teaspoon salt

-1/2 cup white sugar

-1 egg

-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

-1/2 cup milk

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 

To make a Caramel-Apple Upside-Down Cake, the first step is to preheat the oven to 350°F. Once the oven is preheated, you will need to grease a 9-inch round cake pan with butter. This will help the cake to not stick to the pan while baking.

2. In a small bowl, combine the ingredients.

Next, in a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/4 cup butter, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Spread the mixture evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan. Arrange 4 to 5 peeled and thinly sliced apples over the top of the mixture.

3. Arrange 4 to 5 peeled and thinly sliced apples over the brown sugar mixture.

Stir the mixture until it is combined and pour it into the cake pan. Arrange 4 to 5 peeled and thinly sliced apples over the brown sugar mixture.

In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

4. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.

The first step in making a Caramel-Apple Upside-Down Cake is to combine 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a medium bowl. Once all of the ingredients are mixed together, the mixture should be set aside.

5. In a large bowl, beat butter and granulated sugar with an electric mixer.

In a large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup granulated sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in 2 eggs, one at a time. In a separate bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined.

6. Beat until just combined.

In a separate bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Alternately add the flour mixture and 1/2 cup milk to the butter mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.

Beat until just combined. Spread the batter into a greased 9-inch round cake pan. In a small saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup packed brown sugar over medium heat.

7. Spread the batter over the apples in the pan.

Stir the mixture until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Next, pour the caramel into a 9-inch round cake pan and spread it evenly over the bottom.

Arrange the apple slices over the caramel in a decorative pattern. In a separate bowl, mix together the cake ingredients including flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.

8. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Once the mixture is combined, slowly add 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour and mix until the batter is smooth. Pour the batter over the apples and pecans in the cake pan.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes before inverting it onto a plate.

9. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

Once the Caramel-Apple Upside-Down Cake is finished baking, it is important to let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. This will allow the caramel and apples to set and the cake to cool down.

During this time, the cake should be left in the pan and not removed. After 10 minutes, the edges of the cake should be loosened with a knife and the cake should be carefully inverted onto a plate.

If the cake does not come out of the pan easily, it should be placed back in the oven for a few minutes to loosen the caramel.

10. Serve warm. Enjoy!

Pour the batter over the apples in the cake pan and spread evenly. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Once the cake is finished baking, run a knife around the edge of the pan and invert the cake onto a serving plate. Serve warm and enjoy!
