11. Pour some caramel in the cavities. It does not matter if the caramel does not spread completely.
Bring back the caramel over a low heat for a few minutes if necessary to melt it.
Place the silicone baking pan in the oven at 320°F (160°C) so that the caramel spreads well at the bottom of the cavities.

12. Fill the cells with apples almost to the top, leaving 2 to 3 mm for the thickness of the dough.

Press down well with a spoon (it’s important as the tatin will be difficult to remove in one piece!).
Leave to cool and refrigerate.

19.Upon exiting the oven, leave to stand for about 5 minutes and press on tart with a spatula.

Let the baking pan cool and store it in the freezer so it’s easier to unmold.

Remove from the pan and leave to thaw.

Slightly warm in the oven before serving.

Tips
To choose an apple for pie, pick what you like to eat. As a general rule, crisp apples soften but keep their shape during baking; mealy ones break down and get saucy.

The apple upside-down cake can be made in advance and stored in the freezer.

If you want to make this upside-down cake with pears, that’s exactly the same recipe.

 How can you not try it this apple Upside-Down Cake? A sweet and juicy apple is a must here so the fruit’s sugary juices seep out and caramelize to create a rich, almost crunchy topping when the cake is inverted. Use a skillet if you want to maximize this browning effect.
After the classic Tate Tatin we made few months ago and the orange upside-down cake of this winter, let make something fun! This apple upside-down cake recipe is perfect for a workshop with kids, or at school for example.
