Apple Upside Down Cake

This is such an easy to make dessert for the family and its Healthy too!


For the Cake:
125g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
50g butter
1 egg
orange zest

For the apples:
4 Green apples
50g butter
2 tbsp honey
50g Raisins
1 tsp cinnamon

1. Pre heat the oven to 180°C.

2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl with the salt and caster sugar. Cut in the butter and rub together with your fingers until you form a breadcrumb texture.

3. Beat the egg in a measuring jug then pour in milk up to the 110ml mark. Add the milk and egg to the flour mixture and bring together, add a little orange zest (leaving most for the apple mixture) and mix through.

4. Next, peel, core and dice the apples. Add the butter to a hot frying pan and toss the apples through before caramelising with the honey. Add the raisins and cinnamon to the pan along with the rest of the orange zest. Cook for a few minutes making sure that the apples are evenly coated in the honey caramel.

5. Arrange the apples into a pie dish or pan and lay the cake dough over the apples evenly and bake for 18 minutes until golden and risen in the centre.

6. Once done, invert the cake and you have the apple upside down cake!
