An elegant and classic French dessert! Fresh apple slices are the perfect complement to the sweetness of caramel sauce. This delicious caramel-cinnamon flavored Apple Cake completely melts in your mouth.


The tender baked apples and the flavour of cinnamon make this cake so juicy and comforting.

Once the cake is inverted from the pan, all the juices from the baked apples seep down into the cake, adding moistness and flavor.



 

Prep Time: 20 min

Bake Time: 50 min

Total Time: 1 hour 10 min

Serves: 8

 

Ingredients

For the Topping

  • 3 apples, thinly sliced

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F). Butter the bottom and sides of a 23 cm (9-inch) round cake pan (don’t use a springform pan, as the caramel might leak out during baking).


Make The Caramel


2. In a saucepan, heat sugar and 2 tablespoons of water over medium-low heat. Do not stir, continue cooking, swirling pan frequently to keep from burning, until sugar dissolves and the mixture is bubbly. Remove from heat when golden brown and swirl pan till bubbling stops.


3. Carefully, pour the caramel mixture into bottom of a cake pan. Arrange apple slices on top of caramel in a circular pattern. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Set aside.


Make The Batter

5. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add cream cheese and beat until smooth. Add the eggs, one at the time, beating well and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Gradually, add the flour mixture to the batter, beating until just moistened.


6. Gently spread the batter over the apples. Bake for about 40-50 minutes or until golden and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool for 30 minutes. Invert onto serving tray. Serve warm.


Enjoy!
