Apple Cheddar upside down cake: Homey cake, happy moment!

 I thought about this cake a week ago, but actually I still can't decide what I want it to be like.

 Apple and cheddar cheese is a classic combination, first I wanted to turn them into the entremets (well, this thought's still in my head ^^, but there are many elements that I have to decide). But the homey feeling when we talk about the apple cake is something that I want right now, so rather than making a lot of effort, easy, easy is what I long for.
For the cake, I don't use any salt in the batter, because the taste of the cheese is salty so unsalted butter is required here. If you really love the taste of toffee sauce, you can make more of it and drizzle over the cake before serving, it will be delicious too, but for my family it will be too sweet. It's a kind of cake that I can't stop eating, haha, sweet and salty serve it with a cup of tea, it's the moment that you can enjoy.
