Salted Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake

Salted Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake

I’m not even going to say anything today, because, whew.

Today I’m back at work after a delicious weekend at an apple orchard in Washington, and I think it’s pretty obvious that I’d really rather be sleeping on a pillow of this cake than putting on the ol’ black dress pants and hanging a five-point scale on a lanyard around my neck and saying things like “show five” in my pretend calm voice all day.

Personal cake day, I think that’s what they call it, and I need it ASAP.

It’s only appropriate that this recipe would come after an apple-palooza weekend and it’s only appropriate that it is an original recipe from the queen of all desserts SBA: Sally’s Baking Addiction.
