UPSIDE DOWN APPLE CAKE:

Hey, so this recipe was as a result of not having bananas at home. As you may have guessed by going through my recipes, I love bananas with my baked goods. Something about the flavor that is just so yummy and rich. Long story short, I went with this upside down apple cake recipe instead and I couldn’t be happier! (when life gives you apples…) I decided to blend the apples with the milk too, just for it to pass as an actual apple cake. Try it and thank me later folks!

INGREDIENTS:

  1. All purpose flour (3 cups)
  2. Sugar (1 cup)
  3. Coconut oil or regular vegetable oil (1/2 cup)
  4. Almond milk or regular milk (1 cup)
  5. Sliced apples (2 cups)
  6. Baking powder (1 tbsp)
  7. Eggs (3 large)
  8. Vanilla essence (1 tsp)
  9. Brown sugar (1 spoon)
  10. Butter (3 tbsp)

METHOD:

APPLE CAKE BATTER:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 325 degF.
  • Blend a cup of apples with a cup of milk until you get a thick consistency.
  • Combine your dry ingredients in a bowl ( flour and baking powder), and your wet (sugar, apple milk shake, eggs and oil) in another. Use a whisk or a mixer to mix your wet ingredients until smooth.
  • Combine your wet and dry ingredients folding it in gently until you achieve a thick batter. Set aside.
  • Prepare your baking pan by oiling it with some butter and dusting with some left over flour until well coated.

CARAMELIZED APPLES:

  • Melt some butter on a pan and add your spoons of brown sugar. Reduce the heat and keep stirring until you achieve the perfect caramel sauce.
  • Add in the other cup of sliced apples as you ensure that both sides are well coated.
  • Remove them from the fire once they are golden brown, and coat your prepared baking pun with them.
  • Pour your batter over the caramelized apples, and bake for 35-50 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
  • Once the cake has cooled down, turn it upside down and enjoy the glory that is before you.
  • Serve with some extra caramel or vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
