Apple upside down cake

By Lulu Grimes, Olive

Turning a cake into something even more special is easy when you make it upside down. Sticky apple slices and a hint of star anise in this recipe will make an easy dinner-party dessert or the best family pud.

Total Time:  1 hour 20 minutes
Yield: serves 6


  • butter 100g, plus a little extra for the tin
  • dark muscovado sugar 100g
  • self-raising flour 100g
  • baking powder 1 tsp
  • ground ginger a large pinch
  • ground cinnamon a large pinch
  • eggs 2
  • whipped double cream or ice cream to serve


  • butter 50g
  • golden caster sugar 50g
  • whole star anise 2-3
  • apples 3-5, cored and cut into thin slices


Step 1

Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Make the topping by melting the butter and caster sugar together in a pan with the star anise until the sugar has dissolved. Leave to cool a little. Pour into a buttered 20cm springform cake tin or cake tin without a loose base. Put the star anise on opposite sides of the cake. Use the apple slices to line the base of the tin, placing them in concentric circles.

Step 2

Beat the butter and muscovado sugar until it is pale and creamy, then beat in the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon and eggs, along with a pinch of salt. Spoon this onto the apples and level the top.

Step 3

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the sponge is cooked through. Leave to cool for 5 minutes, then turn out the cake carefully onto a plate. Serve with cream or ice cream.
