Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake

Because it's not perfectly beautiful and festively unadorned, I dressed it in homemade whipped cream and a little scrotum sprinkled on top, and as a decoration, but also as an extra taste - I don't think anyone will sniff at the taste of whipped cream.

By the way, I made the recipe in a 28cm tray and I thought it was a little sponge cake for it, so next time I either take the smaller tray or add 2 more eggs and flour with sugar, respectively.


12 pieces
you may use more or less, depending on how big the tray is and how big the apples are
75 g
+ 4-5 tablespoons
4 pieces
White flour
75 g
Baking powder
10 g
12 tsp
according to how many apples we have
Whipping Cream(32-35%)
1 l
+ 1 cup of powdered sugar for it
Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp
+ cinnamon for decoration

Step by step


In a small saucepan put 4 tablespoons of sugar + 2 tablespoons of water and simmer until caramelized.


Do not leave until it turns brown, it must be a pleasant yellow color.


Pour it into the pan or tray in which you will make the cake and spread well with a spoon.

By the way, the tray - I took a cake tray with removable walls (28cm) and I had problems with it - when baking the caramel and the juice leaked from it in the oven, so I had smoke and fun afterwards.

Be careful to take a tray or pan that will not leak when baking, or put the tray with removable walls in a flat oven tray - it will flow, but not in the oven, easier to wash the tray than the oven :)


Peel the apples and peel them, arrange them in the tray and put a little jam in each one. I put strawberries, but you can also skip the step.

Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of sugar over them and put them in the preheated oven at 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes.


Meanwhile, prepare the ingredients for the pandispan.

Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Whisk the egg whites, add 75g of sugar and vanilla in the yolks.


Beat the yolks well with the sugar until they form a white foam.


Add the beaten egg whites and mix more carefully, with movements from top to bottom.


Then add the flour and baking powder, mix well so that they are not lumpy. You can even go through the dough carefully to untie the lumps.


Test the apples with a knife, if they enter them easily, you can take them out of the oven.


Pour the pandispan dough over them and try to get the dough among the apples, spread with a teaspoon if necessary.

I would even recommend making a little more dough, it will definitely reach you.


Put the tray back in the oven and leave for another 15-20 minutes, until the pandispan is nicely browned.


Allow to cool for about an hour then pass the knife over the edges of the form and turn it over on a plate.


I left the edges until it cooled completely, so as not to disfigure the pandispan and the apples while they are hot.


This is what the ready-made cake looks like, of course unadorned.

Now everyone comes up with their own imagination.


I quickly beat the cold cream with powdered sugar, you have the method and steps here .


With a garnish I made all kinds of mounds and sprinkled a little cinnamon over them.

I left it in the fridge for a few hours before serving.

Another 1 step follows with the section ... tomorrow :)

Good appetite!


And the promised slice, absolutely delicious was the cake - soft, refreshing and flavorful. It was very appreciated and actually licked from the plates.

Good appetite!
