Apple Upside Down Cake

25 Jan

Another one from Recipezaar.

3-4 medium apples (such as Granny Smith)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar

2 cups unbleached flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350°
Topping: grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; line bottom with waxed paper and then grease the paper. Pare and core apples; then cut into 1/4-inch thick wedges (about 2 cups). Pour melted butter into pan and sprinkle with brown sugar. Arrange apples, edge to edge, over sugar.

Cake: sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Cream shortening with sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in dry ingredients alternately with milk. Add vanilla, blend well. Pour batter over apples.

Bake 40-45 minutes. Turn cake upside down on a large cake plate or platter immediately. Serve warm with whipped cream.
