Apple Upside Down Cake

My first attempt to Bake a cake in proper way. I was so afraid to experiment with cakes as I burnt them quite a lot of times..Still baking a cake is like a passion and may be I am addicted to the recipe goes like-


Apples- 4 medium sized(Though i Took one and half apples)

For Caramel:
Butter- 50gms,
Sugar-5-6 spoon

For Cake Batter:
Flour- 2 cups
Sugar- 1 cup
Eggs- 4 (Seperate the yolks and white in different bowls)
Baking Powder- 2 Small tsp
Vanilla Extract: 1tsp
Butter- 50 gms

Others:Cinnamon Powder- 1 tsp
Cashews- a few (Not mandatory)
Cherries- as per wish

Butter Paper-for perfect shape I cut in a shape of the mould(I have used round shaped Glass mould)
Butter- for perfect greasing the sidewalls.


1. First remove the skin of the apples then cut into halves, remove the seed portion and cut the apples into thin small "C" shaped Pieces.
2. In the mould, first place the butter paper, then arrange all the apples thoroughout mould. As I have used round shaped mould, arrangement was like a flower.
3. Now make the caramel. Heat a pan and add butter and sugar. Stir it constantly until the colour changes into dark brown. Caramel will be thick but not hard and should not be burnt.
4. Spread the caramel on the apples.
5. Let it cool for few minutes.
6. Take the apples in your microwave and in 200 degree temperature bake it for 2-3 minutes.
7. Meanwhile, In a seperate bowl, take the butter and mix well with Sugar and egg yolks until the sugar melts.
8. Add flour and baking powder slowly fold it and add oil and vanilla extract also. Fold together.
9. In a different bowl, beat the egg white with the help of your hand blender in full speed until the egg white is very soft and doubled in size. Add the cake batter and mix well with spatula.
10. Now spread cinnamon powder and little sugar over the baked apples and also some cashews over it. Add the cake batter and cover the apples well.
11. Preheat the oven in 200 degrees and bake the cake for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, I have baked again in 300 degree for 6 minutes (In Micro+covection mode). I have done toothpic taste after this stage. I have again baked for two minutes in normal mode. Kept it cool for half n hour and turned the cake up and removed the butter paper. Decorated with cherries.
