“And there never was an apple, in Adam's opinion, that wasn't worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” - Neil Gaiman

An old favourite that we have when people come around for afternoon tea. It rarely fails to please everyone. Golden delicious apples tend to bake better.

Upside Down Apple Cake
2 tbsp unsalted butter
4 golden delicious apples, peeled, cored and cut into wedges
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
275g plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
180ml milk
2 large eggs
130 g caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
thick cream, to serve

Preheat fan-forced oven to 160°C.
Melt butter in a frypan on medium heat. Cook apple for 10 minutes or until golden brown all over. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and cloves.
Arrange apples radially in a buttered, 25 cm cake tin and set aside.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Combine milk, eggs, caster sugar, vanilla and cardamom in another bowl; whisk until smooth. Fold into flour mixture until just combined.
Spoon mixture over apples in cake tin.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean. Turn out onto a flat plate and serve hot with cream.

  1. Looks perfect!
    If I baked it, it would come out flat and heavy and might fall apart on my cake slicer thing.
