Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake

I love apple season! It’s one of my favorite times of the year! I made this Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake with farm fresh apples I picked at a local orchard.

The cake is perfectly moist with a hint of spice. Layered on top is a quick caramel sauce and apple slices.

If you don’t have apples you can always substitute whatever fruit you have on hand! Peaches would be amazing in this!

Serve warm with a big scoop of ice cream & enjoy!!

To serve leftovers reheat in the microwave for a couple of seconds and serve immediately!
