I love this recipe… its as easy to make as pineapple upside down…. great flavor, Hope you like it!


  • Topping:
  • 1/4 Cup butter or margarine
  • 2/3 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Medium apples, peeled, cut into ½-inch wedges
  • Cake:
  • 1 1/3 Cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Heat oven to 325ºF. Spray bottom and sides of 8- or 9-inch square pan with cooking spray.

In 1-quart saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in brown sugar. Heat to boiling; remove from heat. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Pour into pan; spread evenly. Arrange apple wedges over brown sugar mixture, overlapping tightly and making 2 layers if necessary.

In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and the salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat 1 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup butter with electric mixer on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until smooth. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture alternately with milk, beating after each addition until smooth. Spread batter over apple wedges in brown sugar mixture.

Bake 55 to 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on cooling rack 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat whipping cream on high speed until it begins to thicken. Gradually add 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, beating until soft peaks form.

Run knife around sides of pan to loosen cake. Place heatproof serving plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Serve warm cake with whipped cream. Store cake loosely covered

This sounds like it might be good if the whole recipe was there

This does sound like a good idea, but the cake recipe is incomplete.

How much milk? How many eggs?

sounds like a great recipe for a Halloween party. (reminds me of my favorite strarbucks drink-caramel apple spice).

So, is the top one totally wrong? The first one says cook the butter and brown sugar and the updated one says cut into, or would it matter... A few other discrepancies just trying to clarify.

If you read the whole recipe, you would see that although the ingredients for the cake were incomplete, when reading the method, the eggs, etc. were included.

Ok, this recipe sounds delicious to me and I am trying to make it..however the ingreident amounts in the two recipes are not the same at all..and how it is put together. I already used the brown sugar and butter from the 1st one and melted the butter and mixed the brown sugar in..then put it in the pan...now I am reading to mix the butter in and make it crumbly and press in. The ingredients listing does not show any sugar at all for the cake and the first instructions say 1 cup granulated sugar and the 2nd instructions say 2/3 cup brown sugar. Please help me. I really want to make this cake.

This recipe sound good but needs to be post it again, correctly. It's too confusing.

Cheezz51 Says... 2015-06-15 17:48:57

First one says 325 deg. Second one says 350?? In the first it says 1 cup granulated sugar, 1/3 cup butter, eggs-plural, and vanilla. The addendum says 2/3 cup BROWN sugar (in directions only - not in ingredient list), 1/2 cup butter, ONE egg and no vanilla listed. HELP!!
