Upside Down Apple Cake Recipe

By Wendy, Newcastle Upon Tyne, 37

This is simple Upside Down Cake uses Apple’s instead of the traditional Pineapple, and includes a classic caramel topping. For Pineapple Upside Down cake you can simply substitute the Apple for Pineapple

  • Pre-heat your oven to 180°C/ 360°F/ Gas Mark 4
  • Grease an 8″ round baking tin
  • Cream the margarine,  sugar and vanilla essence together using an electric mix (until soft and creamy)
  • Sift in the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda
  • Add the eggs and milk
  • Mix together until smooth, creamy and batter like
  • Sprinkle the baking tin with half of the brown sugar
  • Peel and core the apples. Slice half of the apple into thin rings  and place into the baking tin on top of the brown sugar.
  • Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar onto the apple rings
  •  Chop the remaining apple into fine pieces and stir into the batter
  • Pour the batter onto the apples
  • Cook for 40 – 45 minutes or until golden brown and an inserted knife comes out clean
  • Remove from oven and leave in the tin for 10 minutes to cool
  • Then gently run a palette knife around the edge of the tin to loosen the cake and turn it onto a cooling tray
  • Serve warm with double cream or custard

Comments: For Pineapple Upside Down Cake simply substitute the apple with half a fresh pineapple.
