Upside Down Apple cake

I was going through the latest issue of Femina magazine and that's where I came across this mouth watering caramelized apple cake. I decided to give it a go since I had all the ingredients available.

The base cake is the normal sponge base just with a tablespoon of Cinnamon powder.
For the caramalized top, melt 180gms brown sugar in a pan and when it melts add 3 tablespoons of butter. Mix well. pour it in the cake tin and place the cut-cored apple wedges on it. Make the rest of the sponge mixture and add on top of it. Bake for 30mins at 200degrees. Flip it out on plate as soon as you remove it from the oven so that caramel doesnt harden.

Tips to be taken care  of while baking this cake:
1) Make sure the brown sugar doesn't burn and remove it off heat once it turns into an amber color liquid.

2) Add 250 gms of butter for extra moistness.

3) Do not add more than a tablespoon of Cinnamon to prevent the over powering taste.

4) Flip the cake out as soon as you get it out of the oven.

5)Serve warm with whipped cream and tea/cofeee.


Till then untill next time,
