Eggless Apple Upside Down Cake with whole wheat flour Recipe
After my attempt at an upside down cake with pineapple, I wanted to try with apples. This time I didnot use any all purpose flour and did with whole wheat flour and arrow root flour. I usually stock arrow root flour or koova podi in Malayalam during the season(Nov-December), it is available in the market. I use it in baking and whereever corn flour is used in regular cooking. In case u don't have this flour, use corn flour or maida in place of that.
For the cake
- Wheat flour/Atta- 1 cup
- Arrow root/Corn flour - 1/2 cup
- Baking powder - 2 tspn
- Salt - 1/4 tspn
- All spice powder- 1/2 tspn (Mix of cinnamon,nutmeg and cloves)
- Vanilla essence - 1 tspn
- Butter - 1/2 cup
- Sugar- 1/2 cup
- Milk - 1/2 cup
- Flaxseed meal - 1 tblspn mixed in 1 cup of water
- For topping
- Butter - 2 tblspn
- Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup
- All spice powder - 1/4 tspn
One applie sliced
Melt sugar and butter in microwave for a minute. Stir in the spice powder.
Seive together the dry ingredients - Wheat flour,arrow root flour, baking powder and salt. I always measure the dry ingredients to an airtight container and shake it well for few times so that the ingredients gets mixed up well.
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add milk and flaxseed meal mixed with water to the sugar butter mix. Fold in the dry ingredients to the wet mix. Finally mix in the spice powder and vanilla essence.
Grease the cake tin with butter or oil and lightly dust with flour. Pour the melted sugar+butter mix. Arrange the sliced appales overlapping each slice. Pour the cake batter on top of the arranged apple slices.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 55 minutes. Cool the cake and invert it carefully. The cake was slightly denser yet soft.
