The ultimate upside down apple cinnamon cake

Our friends at Lunch Lady Magazine create mouth watering recipes – and have been so kind to share three of their recipes exclusively with Habitat. For all the sweet tooths out there, they have created the ultimate upside down apple cinnamon cake recipe.

  3. Sprinkle a little brown sugar over the butter in each hole and stir with a teaspoon.
