Caramelised apple upside-down cake

I wanted to make something nice for Easter, and found this recipe by Laura Vitale. It's an apple cake with a twist: you create it upside-down, and the apples are caramelised with homemade caramel. (Note that the title on that linked recipe page is wrong; the video and actual recipe are the correct ones.)

I followed the recipe exactly (well, except for the part where I completely forgot to put in the orange zest as I was making it -- whoops), so there's not much of a point in repeating all the ingredients and instructions over here. Instead, have a bunch of step-by-step pictures!

Melting the butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

Dark brown sugar added in to make the caramel.

Caramel poured into well-greased oven dish, and apple slices stacked on top.

Dry dough ingredients mixed together.

Butter, sugar and eggs creamed together.

After mixing wet and dry, spread out the resulting dough on top of the apple pieces.

Side view! Caramel at the bottom, dough on top, and you can just barely see some apple slices in between.

All done :D

Look at those pretty caramelised apples :)

Inside view... this cake texture is absolutely perfect :D
