Best Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake Recipe Instructions

For the caramel base
  • 1 and ½ cups of white sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 10 inch mold

For the Cake
  • 2 apples, cored and peeled
  • 1 cup soft cream cheese
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • ¾ cup walnuts or pecan nuts for garnish

For the Sauce
  • 1 cup heavy cream or whipping cream
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp allspice

Directions for the caramel base
  1. Put the sugar in a medium/small pan on medium high heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves becomes golden, stirring once or twice with a wooden spoon. Do not let get too brown because it gets bitter.
  2. When it has a nice golden color pour it in the cake mold and swirl to cover the bottom.
  3. Put the butter on top of the caramel and let it melt all over.

Directions for the cake
  1. Turn oven to 350F.
  2. Cut the apples in fine wedges and arrange over the caramel in the cake mold.
  3. Whisk the cream cheese, milk, eggs, the anilla extract, and the sugar, then sift in the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda and the cinnamon, mixing to combine.
  4. Pour the batter over the mold and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Let cool down and unmold.

Directions for the sauce
  1. Combine ingredients in a saucepan and cook over high heat until the sugar dissolves, reduce the heat to medium and cook 10 minutes - until it reduces and gets syrupy. Let cool and pour over previously cooled cake and decorate with the nuts.
