Happy Friday foodies,
I’ve got a sweet recipe today that was passed down to me from my momma bear. It’s a traditional European recipe that has been passed down through my family and we’ve been making it ever since. The traditional recipe consists of just copped apples and the cake batter but, I wanted to do something different and interesting. I wanted to experiment with doing an upside down type cake. After many tries and fails, I finally got the perfect combinations.
I also added some fresh rosemary to compliment that sweet and sourness of the apples. Rosemary does a great job of giving this cake some elegance and freshness. If you love a good apple cake, then this recipe will be your new favourite. It’s also the easiest cake I’ve ever made. My favourite way to eat this cake is with some vanilla ice cream!
Up Side Down Apple Charlotte cake (Sharlotka)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup butter (room temp)
Preheat oven to 360 degrees C.
In a circular cake pan (22.9 x 3.81 cm) and butter the sides and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together 2 tbsp of brown sugar and 1/4 cup of soft butter. Once well mixed, add the glaze to the bottom of the pan and spread like butter and set aside.
In a mixer, mix together 3 eggs and 1 cup of sugar until fully mixed. Then add in 1 cup of flour and mix until soft and creamy consistency. Set aside.
Sprinkle the glaze with some fresh rosemary. Slice the apples into thin circles and place them on top of the glaze as well.
Pour the cake batter on top and give the pan a little shake. Place in the oven and bake for 25 mins.
Serve with some vanilla ice cream!
