Spiced Apple Upside Down Cake

unsalted butter

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

2 apples, sliced

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

favorite yellow cake mix

1/4 teaspoon orange extract

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

powdered sugar, for topping

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter the interior sides of a rectangular baking dish.
  3. Mix the cake batter according to the instructions, but also add the orange extract, allspice, cardamom, cloves, ginger and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
  4. Pour the butter on the bottom of a favorite cake pan (I used a 10×7). Evenly distribute the brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
  5. Lay the apple slices on top of the butter mixture. Pour the cake batter on top of the apples.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or according to the cake mix instructions for the size of the pan used.
  7. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  8. Using a flat silicon spatula, gently remove the edges of the cake from the cake pan. Once the edges are separated, flip the cake onto a serving tray or dish. Serve warm.
