I love this cake warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. This Upside-Down Apple Cake is heaven on a plate!



¾ cup butter(170 g), softened
1 ½ cups sugar(300 g)
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup milk(120 mL)
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour(190 g)
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
4 apples, peeled and cut into ¼-inch (6.3mm) thick slices, recommended: granny smith or pink lady


1 cup butter(230 g), melted
1 cup brown sugar(220 g)

How to make Upside-Down Apple Cake

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C.

Step 2: Then, grease a 9-inch or 23cm cake pan.

Step 3: Add the butter and sugar in a bowl. Cream together.

Step 4: Add in the eggs, vanilla, and milk. Whisk until incorporated.

Step 5: Whisk in the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon until completely combined.

Step 6: To make the Sauce: In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once melted, stir in the brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir continuously for 30 seconds or until forcibly bubbling.

Step 7: Transfer the sauce into the prepared cake pan.

Step 8: In a circular pattern, arrange the apples over the sauce.

Step 9: Add and smooth the batter on top of the apples.

Step 10: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 45 to 55 minutes or until the top of the cake springs back when poked gently.

Step 11: Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool for about 10 to 15 minutes. Run a butter knife around the cake edges to loosen the sides.

Step 12: Put a plate on top of the pan, upside down. Invert to flip the cake onto the plate.

Step 13: Before serving, garnish with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Enjoy!
