Upside down apple and walnut cake

  I noticed that Europe is andergoing  a very strong cold wave, while here we melt on heat.

  I have not cooked so much, but walked  with friends a lot. The other day was not very warm  and encourage myself to use the oven and bake this upsidedown cake.

I woke up early and taking advantage of the cool of the morning and using my grandmother's recipe, but with some minor modifications I started to bake. It is softer than usual in these cakes and extra flavor. If you like this cake can also be made with peaches, pears, pineapple  or plums.

Hope you like it and have a beautiful week


  • 2 apples, cored and peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup  all purposeflour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 cup of Sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 1/4 cup chop

    • Preheat oven to 220C
    • Start by making the caramel topping. Take  sugar  and melt in a saucepan on medium heat until sugar dissolves and the mixture is bubbly, this should take several minutes. (After sugar melts, don't stir.) Pour mixture into springform. Arrange apple slices in a single layer ontop of the caramel mixture.
    • Rreserve leftover slices
    • In a bowl cream the butter and sugar until creamy, add eggs and continue beating until well blended.
    • Add flour, salt, chopped nuts, baking powder, and leftover apples. Mix well.
    • Put this mixture over the apples are in the mold and place in the oven for 30 minutes or until inserting a stick in the middle comes out clean.
    • Remove from oven, wait 5 minutes and remove the mold
    Makes 8 to 10 serving
