Moist and Delicious Caramel Apple Cake

Utah is finally cooling down. We’ve been loving it! Besides being able to wear my comfiest sweaters, fall is my favorite season because of the desserts! Time to put pumpkin spice aside for a second. I love pumpkin season but apple has a special place in my heart. I always have a bowl of fresh apples on hand because my kids and I love them so much. To be honest, I just got done obsessing over apple hand pies. Now it’s time for a perfect fall take on a classic upside-down cake! I can’t wait for you guys to try it!

Let’s talk about this caramel apple upside-down cake. Have you ever made a cake that you couldn’t stop eating because it was so amazing? Yeah, this was one of those. Holy cow it was amazing. When I flipped it upside down, the brown sugar caramel goodness on the bottom drizzled down the sides. The apples were perfectly soft and flavorful! You get those amazing fruity, fall spices in every bite. I had my slice with a scoop of homemade ice cream on top. Whipped cream tastes great, too! Honestly, though, this cake is so moist and flavorful, it tastes incredible served on its own!
