For my book club last week, our food theme was "fall food." Needless to say, our meeting featured a lot of pumpkin. I decided to make "mini caramel apple upside down cakes." I didn't have a recipe, so I went about improvising to make something as easy as possible. Here's what I did.
I took several fresh Pennsylvania apples and peeled and sliced them thinly. I then put them in muffin tins (I had to cut several of the slices in half for them to fit), drizzled them with caramel sauce, sprinkled a few pecan pieces in, and then filled the tins with some spice cake mix. Here are the results.
They tasted pretty good. Next time, I'd put a little more caramel. I was worried about putting too much in, but the ones that had more were better. I wanted to use yellow cake, but it was sold out, so I'd probably try that next time too. They were fun for a fall gathering!
