Apple Upside Down Cake

by KK

Hi this is KK, Sushi Artist/ Healthy Muffin Maker / Mum 🙂

Thank you for visiting my blog.


I have a very bad habit of scribbling recipe ideas on a piece of paper and letting them go everywhere, and today, I decided to save some everyday recipes so that I know where to look for them next time: on my own blog!


Most of the recipes are tested more than three times, so I know the ingredients and methods by hand and taste, but the little hints I take for myself are quite handy sometimes, especially making alterations.


This apple upside down cake was prepared for one of my bake sales, and since I didn’t have any cake tins, I used milk cartons! But it came out fine 🙂 It is meant to be made with 9inch(22cm)square tin, but if you don’t have it (like me), you can make it from 3 milk cartons 🙂

Or, just use 1/3 of the ingredients and make 1 milk carton size cake.


Ingredients (for 3 milk cartons)



-3 apples,sliced

-1/2 cup brown sugar

-1 teaspoon cinnamon

-4 Tablespoon melted butter



-220g Organic plain flour

-2 teaspoon Aluminium free Baking Powder

-1 teaspoon cinnamon

-1 pinch salt

-60g Sultanas

-60g Organic raw sugar

-2 Free range eggs (Large size)

– 100g oil (I use rice bran)

-1 teaspoon Organic vanilla essence

-2/3 cup milk



Step 1 :Mix the *TOPPING* in a large bowl, line the base of tin with the apples (Make sure they cover the whole base); Preheat the oven to 180 C.
Step 2: Mix all the dry ingredients (flour, BP, cinnamon, salt, sultana, sugar) in a food processor and mix on high for 30sec, add the rest of the ingredients (eggs, oil, vanilla essence, milk) and mix on medium speed for 40-60 seconds, till the batter is smooth; Pour the batter into the tin (equal amount in each tin/carton) and bake in 180C oven for 25min, or until the skewer comes out clean.


Cool on cake wrack for 10 min before opening it onto a plate. This cake is rich in cinnamon flavor, and if you are a nut-lover like me, I do recommend to put some walnuts in the cake mix. Just chop it roughly (about your handful =30-40g) and add it in the dry ingredients.

Hope you like the recipe!
