The Perfect Fall Dessert: Molasses Toffee Apple Upside Down Cake

Seriously delicious.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned how much I love fall, and how much I love all the flavors of fall. Apples, ginger, and molasses are some of my all-time favorites. Put them all together in a delicious and lovely way, and it’s the most perfect flavor combination!

Moist. Fluffy. Sweet. Gingery.

I found this recipe in the Bake From Scratch Magazine (which I highly highly recommend getting a subscription!) but this recipe is not listed on their site. Find the Fall 2019 Magazine, trust me. It’s worth it!

It’s a ginger bread cake, with a molasses and brown sugar toffee, and thin (but not too thin) granny smith apple slices, baked ‘upside down’ and then turned out right side up with the apples and toffee on top. Be careful with the topping, the edges can burn and the middle won’t melt if the topping isn’t spread evenly, just fyi!

Here’s a little video of making this cake, my new favorite and definitely a new staple for holiday gatherings, friend-get-togethers, and any other event I can find an excuse to make it and share it!

Delicious! Keep following…this recipe could very well show up on my blog after a few tries of creating my own version!

It’s Fall, Y’all! Time for Fall flavors: Pumpkin Spice, and everything nice.

I love everything about Fall. Since I was a little kid, the arrival of fall weather meant the holidays were almost here and that meant my favorite Pumpkin Pie was on the way!

Fast forward to present day Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING, it’s no longer just for holiday gatherings or family get-togethers. If you love it like I do, we can find something with the flavor of pumpkin spice all day, every day!

Make your own Pumpkin Spice mix

I’ve usually relied on store bought pumpkin spice mixes and flavorings, but it’s really easy to make your own. For this post I bought new McCormick spices, but you can use whatever you prefer. The key is making sure your spices are as fresh as they can be.
