Recipe Ingredients for Caramelized Apple Cake

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup apple juice
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. light stick butter
4 medium Fuji apples, peeled and cored, each cut into 8 wedges
1/2 stick light butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. apple pie spice
1/4 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup low fat buttermilk

Recipe Directions for Caramelized Apple Cake

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. You'll need a 9x2-in. round cake pan coated with nonstick spray.

  2. Topping: Mix sugar and juice in a large nonstick skillet; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil 4 minutes or until light honey color. Add lemon juice and butter; reduce heat to medium. When butter is melted, boil mixture 1 minute or until light golden. Add apples, flat sides down; cook 8 minutes, turning apples with a fork after 4 minutes, until lightly carmelized and crisp-tender. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes.

  3. Cake: Pour apple mixture into cake pan; arrange apples in concentric circles. Beat butter, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, baking soda, spice and salt with a mixer in a medium bowl 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended. Beat in flour and buttermilk alternately, in three additions, until batter is smooth. Pour batter over apples; spread to edge of pan. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until a pick inserted in center comes out clean.

  4. Cool on wire rack 10 minutes. Invert onto a serving plate. Cool until cake is just warm, then serve (it's also delicious at room temperature).
