Apple Cranberry Upside Down Cake

Apple Cranberry Upside Down Cake
This image courtesy of

This Apple Cranberry Upside Down Cake recipe is a perfect Thanksgiving dessert recipe. The cranberries and apples mingle together with cinnamon and brown sugar on the sweet sticky top layer. On the bottom there’s a delightful buttery cake that is actually lighter than you think, because it’s lightened up by using half butter and half applesauce. And if you’re serving this on a special occasion, it wouldn’t hurt to pick up some vanilla ice cream.

Preparation Time20 min

Cooking Time50 min


  • 2 1/2 cups gluten free Bisquick
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 apples, peeled and cut into 8 wedges per apple
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh cranberries, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9x13 inch sheet cake pan.

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the softened butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon until you have a smooth paste then spread the mixture evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan.

  3. Top the mixture with the apple slices spaced evenly apart, then scatter the cranberries into the empty spaces and set the pan aside while you make the cake batter.

  4. Using either a stand mixer or wire whisk, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, applesauce, milk and vanilla until smooth.

  5. Add the gluten free Bisquick and mix until you have a smooth batter.

  6. Spoon the batter over apples and cranberries being careful not to disturb the apple pattern on the bottom, and then gently smooth out the top.

  7. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

  8. Let the cake rest in the pan for 5 minutes then to remove it from the pan. I like to place a piece of parchment paper over the cake then place a cutting board on top of the parchment then invert the cake out onto the cutting board.
