Apple Gingerbread Upside-Down Cake Recipe

Apple Gingerbread Upside-Down Cake

Apples and gingerbread work well together as a perfect flavor pairing in this twist on the traditional pineapple upside-down cake. It's a warmly spiced cake for fall or great as a different take on plain holiday gingerbread cake.
