Upside-Down Caramelized Apple Cake
Our apple upside-down cake is the ideal fall dessert. A classic upside-down cake recipe, it combines the best of fall flavor—from the actual spice cake batter, made with warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, to the brown sugar, apple, and pecan topping. The brown sugar, apple, and pecan mixture that’s cooked in the skillet becomes a gooey, rich topping for the cake when it’s inverted. One of the best things about this apple upside-down cake is that it cooks in your cast-iron skillet from start to finish. If your cake doesn’t come out of the skillet completely clean, no worries. Simply spoon the remaining topping on the cake. Unlike perfectly iced layer cakes, upside-down cakes don’t have to look picture perfect this holiday season. Whether you’re settling in for a cozy fall night or hosting Thanksgiving lunch for the family, this Upside-Down Caramelized Apple Cake is going to be a hit.
