I know it has been a long time since I updated my blog but between work and studies, I haven’t had the time. But since today is my birthday (May 6th), I baked myself an Upside Down Apple Cake. I know it’s not a traditional birthday cake but I wanted to combine my love of apples with cake. Furthermore, this Upside Down Apple Cake is meant for me to satisfy my cravings for the delicious tartness of apples.
Anyway, I came across this jar of apple butter from and thought I might use it in my baking. Usually, the most popular way to make this cake is with caramel sauce but I used the apple butter because it’s subtly sweet with hints of cinnamon and brown sugar. I’m using Braswell’s Select Apple Butter from Loblaws. I don’t find this Upside Down Apple Cake overly sweet but if you want something sweeter, just add ice cream or caramel sauce. Enjoy!
