Ahh, my favorite season is finally here, apple season! There is just something so inspiring with a new season, and especially autumn when the air gets crisp and you can just stay inside and bake caramel apple upside down cake. Hehe.
I made my first upside down cake back in 2017 but without caramel, a blood orange upside down cake. While that was so delicious and pretty, I absolutely love fruit baked in caramel, so I made a banana upside down cake later that year and that is the recipe I used when I made this, with a few tweaks here and there.
Remember, when you make the apple pattern, what you see when you make it is not what you will see when you turn the cake upside down! I know, it’s a little confusing. I started making a beautiful pattern but then remembered, it won’t look like this when it’s baked so I sort of had to make the opposite. You can see how I placed the apple slices in one of the photos. Let me know in the comments if you try this recipe!
