In The Kitchen: Apple Upside-down Cake with Cardamom & Cinnamon

It's just starting to feel like fall here in Charleston, and fall to me means apple cider, apple cake, caramel apples...basically anything spiced & apple-y. I found this recipe via Not Eating Out in New York, and followed it exactly with the exception of adding cardamom to the apple/cinnamon/sugar mixture.

As I was taking it out of the oven I accidentally grabbed the handle of the skillet this was baking in without an oven mitt, and subsequently dropped the whole pan on the floor (fortunately it didn't fall upside down) resulting in scrambled cake. Still, this was amazing. Worth the burn.
