upsidedown apple cider cake...ahhhhmmmmazing.

I made this for Loren's birthday, and it is really delish, so I thought I would post the recipe here. This cake calls for hard apple cider.  I used Hornsby's, but I think any brand would do nicely. Makes one 8x14" cake.

4 tbsp butter
2/3 c. brown sugar
spice of your choice--I used pie spice from here.

thinly slice apples and spread evenly in the bottom of your baking dish.  Sprinkle brown sugar and spice over the apples.  Melt butter and pour over.

2 2/3 c. sifted flour
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. softened butter
1 12oz bottle of hard cider
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs

Cream together butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients alternating with cider.  When batter is well mixed, spoon evenly over "topping" in the bottom of your 8x14" baking dish.  Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.  Remove from oven, cool 5 minutes and then invert cake onto platter of your choice.  It is awesome served warm with a little bit of vanilla ice cream.  Enjoy!
