Upside Down Ginger Apple Coffee Cake (Clean Eating)

This is a lovely, healthy recipe that is not overly sweet, but has enough flavor to be well-suited for either brunch or a light dessert. It is from the October 2011 issue of Clean Eating, but I have tweaked it a bit. The original calls for sucanat instead of the sugars and safflower oil instead of canola. Cooking time includes cooling time before inverting.

    Made your recipe as given & absolutely loved the maple-syrup-&-apple topping! Just need to remember to make thin slices with the apple so you have enough to easily cover the entire bottom of the baking pan! Very nice combo of flavors throughout, & a great keeper recipe, too! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
