I love a good challenge. Some of my best works of art have come from challenges requiring working around a theme, colors, materials, techniques etc. So several years ago when I was invited to participate in a recipe challenge using caramel and apples I was ready to give it a go. After dreaming about mouth-watering caramel apple donuts, dip and other goodies I decided to try a caramel apple upside down cake.
This wonderful, slightly decadent cake is perfect for fall entertaining, including Thanksgiving dinner. It has become one of our favorites. Of course this cake is gluten-free, but your guests will never know unless you tell them.Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake
½ cup butter or margarine
½ cup chopped walnuts
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 apples, sliced thin — core removed, but I don’t peel mine
