Weekend Cooking: Upside Down Apple Coffee Cake from Gooseberry Patch's Quick and Easy Autumn

There is finally a nip of coolness in the air, and since this is the 1st of October, and officially (well, for me anyway) the start of Autumn, I thought I'd share a fall-ish type recipe with you today.

This delicious, easy and quick cake comes from the wonderful new cookbook "Quick and Easy Autumn" from the folks at Gooseberry Patch.

Upside-Down Apple Coffee Cake

1-1/2 c. apples, peeled, cored, chopped and divided
12.4-oz. tube refrigerated cinnamon rolls, separated
1/2 c. pecan pieces
2 T. butter, melted
1/3 c. brown sugar, packed
2 T. corn syrup

Spread one cup of apples in a 9" glass pie plate sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray. Cut cinnamon rolls into quarters, setting aside icing from tube. Place rolls in a large bowl; add remaining apples and pecans. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well and pour over rolls. Toss gently to combine. Spoon mixture over apples in pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes, until rolls are deep golden. Cool for 5 minutes; invert onto a serving platter. Remove lid from icing and microwave for 10 to 15 seconds. Drizzle icing over warm coffee cake. Makes 8 servings.

About The Book:
