apple upside-down cake

2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup butter at room temperature
1 ½ cups milk
2 large eggs
2 ¾ cups sifted flour
1 tbs baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together sugar and butter. Whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla. Add to butter/sugar mixture. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Fold into wet mixture in thirds, beating until smooth, being careful not to over-mix.
for the apples:
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbs ground cinnamon
¾ cup chopped pecans
4 large apples, cored, peeled, sliced
(I used Galas)
Add melted butter to a 13”x9”x2” glass baking pan. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir into melted butter in pan. Sprinkle with nuts. Arrange apple slices over the nuts and cover with cake batter. Bake at 350F for about 50-55 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for just 5 minutes. Loosen edges with a knife. Cover cake pan with a large baking sheet or platter and carefully turn
