Caramelised Apple Ginger Upside Down Cake

Posted by Sweeter side of life at 12:36:00
I just so love the smell of ginger. who knew apple and ginger make great friends??

The apple at the bottom of the pan took the beating inside the hot oven but surely you would know why our parents punish us when we were young?

It turn out upside down so well : D i couldn't help picking at the apples on the cake.

Adapted from the Cake Bible


3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored

4 cups plain flour

4 teaspoons ground ginger ( i doubled for more ginger flavour)

225g Salted Butter, chilled and cubed

2 cups sugar (i reduced to one cup)

4 Tablespoons golden syrup(substitute with honey if golden syrup not available)

2 Teaspoons bicarbonate soda (Baking Soda)

1 1/2 cups milk

2 tablespoons lemon juice (i used apple cider vinegar)

Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius

Lightly grease a deep 7" cake tin and line bottom with parchment paper(baking paper)

Sprinkle brown sugar onto lined tin

Cut apple to half, length wise.

With flat side facing chopping board, slice apples, each about 3-4mm thick

Arrange apple slices to cover bottom of tin (i started from the widest part of the tin, working inwards)

Sieve flour and ginger, rub in butter with fingers or process with food processor till mixture becomes crumbly(This is the time when i actually started preheating my oven, didn't want to incur unnecessary electric bills)

Add sugar, golden syrup amd bicarbonate soda already dissolved in milk

Mix well, add lemon juice

Pour mixture over apple slices and bake for 60-75 minutes

Turn cake onto plate with apples on top.

CAREFULLY remove baking paper.
