Classic Apple Upside Down Cake
Dessert or breakfast pastry? You decide. Whether you serve our Apple Upside-Down Cake with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of vanilla yogurt, this rustic cake is bound to be a winner. There are a few things to note when preparing. First, be sure to use smaller apples in order to allow more rings to fit into the pan—it will turn out much prettier this way. You’ll also want select a cake plate or platter that is completely flat without a lip to ensure a flawless transfer when you turn it out. If you’re tempted to swap the Honeycrisp for another apple variety, we urge you to do so with caution: the Honeycrisp hold up wonderfully in this cake—even keeping a bit of crunch through the baking process. The slightly tart flavor is an absolute winner when paired with the sweet and tender cake.
