Candy Apple Red Upside Down Cake!

YES! An Apple Cake with that lovely Candy Apple Red Color to tantalize your eye & get your taste buds all perky! This has the lovely topping of Candy Apple Red apples sauteed in brown sugar & spices with a hint of Apple Cider! The cake is moist & lightly spiced with the hint of cider too! Together they melt in your mouth & leave you SATISFIED!

1 Cup Apple Cider
3 Apples peeled cored & sliced
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
3 TBS Butter
Dash of Salt
1 TSP Vanilla
2 Dashes each of Nutmeg, Cloves, & Ginger
1 Tsp Cinnamon
Drops of Red Food Coloring ( enough to be Candy Apple Red I used about 8 drops) IF YOU HAVE FOOD COLORING ALLERGIES just go natural & leave out the red food coloring. You will have the GREAT tasting cake with an ALL NATURAL look!

Place all of the above in a saucepan & simmer & stir until reduced & slightly thickened. About applesauce consistency. Once cooked remove from heat & mix up the cake batter.

1 & 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Sugar
3 TBS Shortening
2 Eggs
1/2 TSP Salt
1 & 1/2 TSP Baking Powder
1/4  Cup Milk
1/4  Cup Apple Cider
1 Tsp Vanilla
Dash each of Cloves, Nutmeg, & Ginger
1 TSP Cinnamon

Stir all dry ingredients together. Beat shortening with the sugar. Add eggs & beat again.  Stir the remaining wet ingredients together. Now add 1/3 of the dry to the shortening mixture & beat. Add 1/3 of the liquid & beat. Continue until everything is combined & batter is smooth.  Butter a 9" round cake pan. Spoon in the Candy Apple Red mixture & spread out evenly. CAREFULLY spread the cake batter over the apple mixture & smooth out the top. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until batter test done. Remove from oven & let cool in the pan about 8 minutes. Run a knife along the edge to loosen cake. Now place a plate over the cake & invert to dump out cake. IF cake does not release tap the bottom & sides with a knife handle & cake will release. Let cool to warm & serve with Cool Whip or Vanilla Ice Cream or just as is. GREAT COLD TOO! Eating this cake  just as is this and  is still an AWESOME CAKE!
