Apple Walnut Upside Down Cake!

By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!

One of my favorite cakes is Pineapple Upside Down cake. It makes me think of my paternal grandfather. He used to make it when we would go visit. It was always so good and one cake that I still enjoy and crave. I of course had to do a little experimenting and do my own thing, so I thought I would use the same method, but have an autumn fruit instead. This cake really did turn out well, if I do say so myself. I have said I am not a baker, MAYBE… just maybe that is changing. I think I am on a trend of baking something every weekend now. I adapted a the  Pineapple Upside Down Cake from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook to this. I hope you love it.

Serves 8



  • 1/4 cups butter
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cups milk
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350*F


Place ¼ cup butter in 9 inch round cake pan. Melt the butter in the pan in the oven.


Remove from oven and stir in the brown sugar.


Lay the apple slices in a single layer in the pan. Sprinkle cinnamon over the apples and spread the walnuts over the apples.

Sugar and Spice

In a medium size mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, salt and rest of the cinnamon. Add the milk, butter, egg and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for one minute. Batter may be a little lumpy.


Pour the batter over the apples and spread so it is even.

Bake the cake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for about 5 minutes. Run a butter knife around the side of the cake to loosen.
