It’s an upside down cake with the apple being upside down and the cake being sweet potato.
Apple, spice and everything nice with some sweet potato is everything that this cake is made of.
I’m not going to talk your head off about it, here’s how you make one for yourself.
What you’ll need, for the Apple Upside-Down Sweet Potato Cake!
One Large sweet potato cooked mashed
1 ½ cup sugar
5 tablespoons butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 granny smith
1 red delicious
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 cup brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter
½ teaspoon apple pie spice
Oil the bottom and sides of your cake pan.
Place a rounded parchment paper in the bottom of the pan.
Trace out a circle from the pan onto your parchment paper. Cut it out and put it at the bottom of the pan.
Peel and core the apples.
Thinly slice the apples and place at the bottom of the cake pan as neatly and in unison as possible. If you care about presentation!
I just want it to taste good, so I put them in the pan neatly not so fancy, just neat.
Mix up the brown sugar, apple pie spice, 6 Tablespoons of butter, and maple syrup!
Pour brown sugar mix over apples.
Set that aside for a hot second so you can work on the cake batter.
Mix flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg together.
I a separate bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and sweet potato.
Add eggs one at a time.
Add flour and buttermilk alternately to the sweet potato mix.
End with flour
Do not over mix.
Mix in Vanilla.
Now put cake batter over top of the apple and brown sugar mix.
Bake in oven at 400 for 15 minutes and then turn down to 350 and bake for another 45 minutes.
Check and make sure it’s done with a toothpick straight down the middle.
If toothpick is clean than its ready!
Let the cake cool in pan for at least 45 minutes.
Flip over on plate, remove parchment paper and serve warm….with some ice cream!
The sweet caramelized apples on top of the creamy and delicious sweet potato cake will make your day….I know I said this already but this needs to be enjoyed warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream…sometimes you have to say forget them fat thighs I want my cake and ice cream too!
