Apple Upside-Down Cake

Today i decided to make a apple cake but i wanted it to be more exciting so i thought i would make an apple upside down cake so i have thrown loads of apples in the cake batter. 

I also put cinnamon into it to get that yum apple sugar cinnamon taste. Add pears with the apple if you wish or maybe throw in some sultanas for variety. 

Serve this hot or cold with custard or fresh cream.

  9. Peel and Chop the apples and add to the flour mix.
  10. Add the sugar and mix well.
  11. Add the beaten eggs.
  12. If the mixture is too dry add a little milk to make a smooth glossy mix but not too thick.

  14. Sprinkle the top with sugar.
  15. Bake for approx 40 minute until golden brown.
  16. Toss the cake onto a plate. It should slide out no problem.
