Caramel Apple Upside-down Cake Recipe

I don’t know what it is about snowy weather but on those days all I can think about is baking and cooking. I didn’t make this recipe today but I saw a bag of apples on my counter and REALLY thought about it! I worked on this recipes a few months ago and it really is quite amazing. I will be making it again in the future and I hope that you do too!
