Upside Down Apple and Jam Cake
by Collette White | Feb 28, 2017
Good Morning! I hope this finds you all well! Todays recipe is bought to you by my desire for Banana Bread every time I make it for the kids! (I am intolerant to Bananas) … so I decided to have a play around with swapping the banana for apple and was thrilled when it worked. My kids came home yesterday to it for afternoon tea and Master 6 ate two pieces … and when I wasn’t looking took a 3rd! When he saw me packing his school lunch box later that night, he asked me to fill it with the ‘apple bread’ … WINNING! (…and let me say, no I didn’t fill his lunch box with it!) I re-tested it again today just to check my measurements and couldn’t wait to get it on here for you to try. I hope you love it as much as my family does!
1 tblspn jam of choice
1 apple – cored and thinly sliced
400g stewed apples
1 cup brown rice flour (170g)
¼ cup coconut flour (30g)
1/8 cup honey (40g)
2 tspns fresh lemon juice or ACV
1 tspn baking powder
¼ tspn cinnamon
Line a square 20cm x 20cm cake tin with baking paper.
Preheat oven to 180c.
Spread the jam evenly over the bottom of the baking paper (I used a wet pastry brush to make this easy). Layer the thinly sliced apples on top of the jam.
Place all the remaining ingredients into a food processor etc and blitz until creamy, smooth and thoroughly combined. You might need to scrape down the sides a few times during this process.
TMX: Speed 5 / 30 seconds. Scrape down sides, then a further 10 seconds on Speed 5.
Pour cake mixture into the prepared tin and bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
Allow to cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before turning upside down onto a plate.
- You can turn this into an apple ‘bread’ (similar to a banana bread) by leaving out the bottom jam and sliced apple and pouring the mixture into a lined bread tin. You will need to increase the baking time to approx 50-60 minutes (depending on your oven). Even this square shape does have that slightly moist and dense texture of banana bread.
- If you haven’t got apples to stew, you can buy tin ‘pie apples’ that is nothing but apples.
- Once cool, I cut mine into squares and kept it in a container in the fridge.
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
