Start with a spice-rich batter baked atop apples and cranberries in a creamy caramel sauce, then invert when done, for a topsy-turvy dessert that’s a real beauty. The old-time holiday taste will delight family and friends! —Jeanne Holt, Mendota Heights, Minnesota
This rich, creamy torte has always been one of my favorite autumn desserts. Mom uses the freshest apples from a local orchard and bakes this treat until the apples are crisp-tender. It tastes as good as it looks.

At the campground where my husband and I have a trailer, the campers hold an auction of baked goods every Fourth of July. I donated this moist Bundt cake last year and it brought in the highest bid! I often use black walnuts in place of regular walnuts because they add a special flavor.
This tender, moist cake is full of old-fashioned comfort, and the yummy brown sugar sauce makes it special. For a festive occasion, top with a dollop of whipped cream. —Debi Benson, Bakersfield, California
This wholesome treat is loaded with healthy ingredients, including apples, raisins, cranberries and walnut. There's plenty of flavor in every moist bite, and it comes together in minutes.

When you visit friends or relatives in my area of the country, you can be sure the coffee will be brewing soon and their favorite dessert will be served. This is my favorite - maybe that's why I get a lot of visitors!
