Apple Upside Down Cake
If you’re in the market for a lovely light luscious delectable cake you’re in luck! This whole food plant based cake is as healthy as it is delicious and it’s even gluten-free should you desire. Crazy, right? It’s beautiful and delicious and you’re going to want to make it on the regular.
Serves: 6 slices (or, I mean, however many you wanna slice it into - I'm not the cake police, people!)
1 1/2 cups gluten free 1:1 all purpose flour (you can also just use regular whole wheat flour if you don’t need it to be gluten free.
1/2 cup coconut sugar
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 cup water
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 apples, peeled (if desired) and sliced thin
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Get a 9 inch silicon pan ready. If you don’t have a silicon use parchment.
In one large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl combine the apple sauce, water, vanilla and apple cider vinegar. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together until just combined. Do not fucking over mix that shit - seriously! This shit’s going to be thick, but the apples are going to get moist AF as they bake and it’ll release into the dish - science, baby!
Arrange some apples into the bottom of the pan into whatever pattern you’d like - make it fancy and shit! Gently fold in the rest of the apples with the batter and then spoon the batter into the pan. Be careful not to fuck up your pattern while you do this! Just scoop it and smooth it all around. Pat that shit down into the pan, get your hands damp and use them if you’d like.
Bake for 40-45 minutes depending on your oven - make sure the centre is set and it’s starting to brown a bit on top. Once it’s cool gentle flip over to reveal that awesome-ass pattern you designed. Cut that shit into slices and SMASH IT INTO YOUR FACE!
Swap out the apples for pears if you wanna get fancy and shit!
