“I saw a recipe for a caramel apple upsidedown cake one day and thought why not top a nice hot bowl of oatmeal with caramel & apples. A great idea was born. You can use whatever type of apple you prefer, we usually have Macs in the house. If you can get a HoneyCrisp apple it is fabulous. I prefer to eat this without milk. I will top it with a spoonful of vanilla yogurt some days. You could use table cream or half & half instead of heavy cream if you want to cut the fat content down.”
