There's something about caramel and apples...the sweetness of the caramel and the tartness of the apples; it's the perfect combination!  I also love upside down desserts so I decided to make this Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake.  It uses everyday ingredients that are found in your pantry and it's easy to prepare.  The caramel seeps into the cake, it's all sticky and gooey and is down right delicious!  If you're a caramel apple lover then make sure you try this Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake...it's love at first bite!
