Apple Upside Down Cake Recipe - Eggless & Low Fat

I have a love for upside down cakes, i have made three upside down cakes so far and this is my 4th one. I will be many more upside down cakes with many more fruits very soon..

I wanted to try a low fat cake for a long time and this is the perfect recipe. This recipe calls just 2 tblspn of butter for the caramel alone and the cake itself doesn't need any fat..So it is low fat, eggless and delicious..

In place of apples, you can go with pineapples, pears, plums, peaches, strawberries, mangoes or any fruit you like..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you
