I started scanning the internet and stumbled upon a scrumptious looking Apple Upside Down Cake at Butter Yum. I was drooling all over the keyboard by the time I finished my emergency email to BY. How do I get the recipe for this fabulous cake??? I felt a tad stupid when I recieved Butter Yum's sweet reply. Turns out that I was so smitten by the gorgeous cake, that I didn't read the whole post and hadn't realized that it was a Heavenly Cake Baker's cake of the week, from a new book, Rose's Heavenly Cakes by Rose Levy Beranbaum.
Well, I looked at the book on Amazon and I can tell you now, that as sure as God made those little green apples, I will own that volume in the very near future. In the meantime, however, I still needed to use the apples aging on my kitchen counter. I went back online for more recipe ideas, but couldn't get the upside down cake out of my mind. Sure, I found recipes, but there was something in each one that I didn't like or didn't have in the house. The only solution was to combine several recipes. I did, and this is the delicious result...
I don't think I could recreate this exact cake again. My apples were already a bit too soft. I was less than exact with my measurements. I will never remember which recipe I took which step from or in what order.
But sometimes life in the kitchen serves up a happy accident.
My husband and I are certainly enjoying this one!
