This is just the thing for those chilly autumn days and abundance of apples on your counter. The caramel sauce and baked apple slices may be eye-catching, but don’t underestimate the warm, cozy flavors of that airy cake spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Be prepared for the smells of fall to take over your kitchen – the kids will be clamoring for a slice before it’s even out of the oven!
If you're worried about overflowing, use a 9- or 10-inch round pan on top of a cookie tray or sheet of aluminum foil.
Cake came out great!
The right texture and all!
The apple Carmel glaze pairs nicely with the ever moist cake that is not overly sweet for its topping.
I used a 10inch pan and baked at 350 for 50minutes. No spill over with mine.
Thank you for a delicious recipe! It's a keeper
Hi Violet! We are so glad to hear this was a success for you! 💜
Think this would work in a Bundt pan?
Hi Delicia! Yes, this should work in a bundt pan. Let us know how it turns out.
This is truly the best caramel apple upside-down cake ever! The cake is so moist and the texture is so delicate and delicious! I followed the instructions exactly, I didn't have a round cake pan,I put it in an 8" square
glass pan, decreased temp by 20° and baked 1 hour, checking to make sure center was done. Loosened edges and the cake came out perfect. Already have requests for this cake for Thanksgiving and Christmas! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Hi Bev, thank you for taking the time to let us know how this recipe turned out for you. We're glad to hear it's a new favorite!
Can we use cake flour for this recipe?
Hi Mary Ann, we certainly think you could give it a try! Cake flour generally makes for a lighter, more airy cake. So you'd need to keep that in mind when making that decision. Either way, we'd love to hear how yours comes out!
Very good recipe however I did tweak it a little bit. I added some nutmeg, cloves and ginger spices and it turned out amazing. I would also recommend lining your pan with parchment paper because some of the apples did stick to the pan on the bottom even though I let it cool down and greased it well. I also did experience the overflow I used a 9 inch pan I’m going to make it again and use a 10 inch pan and line my oven rack with foil
We're glad it came out amazing, Liz!
best recipe ever!
Hi Lula! We are so glad you like it as much as we do! :)
Can’t wait to make this apple cake. It looks luscious.
It is very yummy! We hope you enjoy!
Lo haré, se ve exquisito
¡No podemos esperar a escuchar cómo resultará, Melina!
Looks absolutely perfect & delicious. Thanks for sharing. Will definitely make it in near future 🙏
We hope you love it, Sue!
My cake came out delicious! A few apple slices stuck to the pan but I was able to carefully remove them and reattach to the top of the cake. I used a 9 inch pan, baked for 50 mins. The cake came out a bit lopsided - I hope that all the calories leaked out!
Thanks for trying this recipe. We are so glad to hear that, overall, it was a success. It's hard to know exactly what might've caused the unevenness as there could've been a multitude of factors (ie. uneven distribution into the pan, uneven heat in oven, air bubbles). To help prevent this in the future it might help to lightly tap the bottom of the pan against the counter before placing in the oven to ensure all the batter has settled flat into the pan then rotating pan 180 degrees in the oven approximately halfway through baking process.
This is fabulous!! We didn't even cut into our pie - just gobbled this up! Yum!
We're so glad that it was a huge hit with your Thanksgiving guests, Mary! Thank you so much for giving the recipe a try.
I just tried this recipe and most of my apples floated to the top! Hoping it still tastes good. 🤔
Oh no! We're sorry that it didn't come out as expected, Patricia. We have a feeling it'll still taste absolutely delicious, though. Hope you and your family enjoy it!
It's one of our favorites, Matha. Hope you get the chance to do some baking this holiday season!
Ok I just made this and the batter is over dlowing in my 8" round pan. Luckily, I put foil under the pan.
We're so sorry that this happened, Tracy! We hope it didn't make too much of a mess. We appreciate the tip and will add a note to the recipe so that others can avoid overflowing batter and caramel.
Like the recipe but I dont have a printer and the "share" button doesn't work. Also, why is it sooooooooo big? Hard to read as is.
