Apple-Cornmeal Upside Down Cake

Nice save , I might say ....

I added the sliced apples into the sugar and butter mixture not knowing that the mixture is burned ...

Maybe because I left it too long on the stove top tsk tsk

So when I tasted it after a minute - ekkkkkk bitter much ?! Added some brown sugar but still no go ! tsk tsk

Burned caramel really tastes bitter and no matter how much sugar you're going to add , it will still taste bitter as I found out  -____- ''

I was thinking of just throwing it , go down and buy some apples but I'm sweating buckets - the kitchen was so hot - I didn't have the energy or just pure laziness hee hee

So I just washed the sliced apples instead and made another caramel while watching it with eagle eyes ^___-

Saves time , money and energy  lol

Good thing though that the apples that I used - Braeburn - keeps it shape despite washing and cooking it again !

Burned caramel aside , this recipe's the easiest I've tried so far ...

Cornmeal really adds an awesome texture in this moist and delicious cake ...

So , who wants a slice then ?!

I made half of the recipe and used 3 apples .
