Upside-Down Apple Cake

Upside-Down Apple Cake

Hi Everyone,

Baking an upside-down cake has been on my agenda for some time now. This week I finally gave it a try.

This cake can be made using other fruit such as plums or apricots as well. The one tip I have is that when placing fruit on the bottom of the cake tin avoid the urge to overlap. The cake will turn out much nicer if you have a thin single layer of fruit showing.

Other than this it is a super easy and quick cake to bake.
