Sometimes the simplest ideas are often best. Of course the Tarte Tatin is a great example of that, turning your apple tart upside down. I took a spin on that and made some upside down apple cakes, inspired by Wikipedia.
In my case I needed a quick sweet treat because of the birthday of a dear friend. I decided to go for the classic quatre-quarts cake mixture. So easy to remember and the result is always good.
During my last few creations I actually decided to make them upside down. I already tried it with Conference pears, but this time it was with Belle de Boskoop apples. The result was so good I actually made them again in the same week.
I am really enthousiastic about the flavour combination of the sour apple together with the sweet honey and the cinnamon. Not to mention the addition of the nice vanilla cake. You have to try this one!
Ingredients (makes 6 cakes)
100 grams all purpose flour
100 grams sugar
100 grams butter
1 Belle de Boskoop  apple
First mix the butter, vanilla pod seeds and sugar together until the mixture is a bit creamy. Add the eggs and keep mixing.
Sift the flour and baking powder (couple of grams) and add it in parts to the egg mix. Keep stirring until you get a nice smooth mix. Add some milk if the cake mixture gets to dry to your likings.
Preheat the oven on about 160 degrees celcius. Grease a muffin tin with some butter.
Add some honey to every muffin hole. Cut the apple in thin slices and devide them evenly to every muffin hole. After that you can cover the apple parts with the cake mixture.
Bake the cakes in the oven for about 35 minutes or until golden brown.
