So, go ahead and get your oven preheating – let’s get ready to bake some homemade goodness!
Is It Necessary to Refrigerate Apple Upside-Down Cake?
Because of the high moisture content, this delicious caramel apple upside-down cake will only last a few days. Wrap it tightly and place it in the refrigerator to keep it as fresh as possible, or store your cake in an airtight container.
How Do I Keep My Upside-Down Cake from Sticking?
Take a cookie sheet and cover it with a large piece of plastic wrap. Place the cake in the center of the wrap, fold, and place it in the freezer for about an hour. This hardens the topping sufficiently to prevent it from sticking when completely wrapped in freezer wrap.
How Long Will the Apple Cake Keep Fresh?
Room Temperature:Fresh apple cake will stay at room temperature for about three days.
Refrigerator:You can store this cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
Freezer:Apple cake keeps well in the freezer. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, then add another layer of aluminum foil.
