Upside Down Caramel Apple Walnut Cake
Recipe Type: Dessert, Baking
Grab a cup of warm cider and whip up this quintessential fall dessert reminiscent of a caramel dipped apple.
  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 1¼ cup milk
  • 3 tsps baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1 cup caramel sauce, homemade or store bought
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9 inch round baking pan. Add caramel and arrange sliced apples to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Sift flour into a large bowl. In another bowl cream butter with electric mixer. Slowly add sugar to butter until creamy and fluffy. Sift flour again along with baking powder and salt into butter mixture. Next add one egg at a time to mixture. Then slowly add milk and extract. Finally add walnuts and fold them in with a spatula. Do not over beat cake batter or it will become a dry cake.
  3. Slowly add batter to the pan without shifting apples and caramel.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes. Take a large plate and place on top of pan and slowly flip over. Tap on the bottom of pan and remove.
