Gluten Free Upside-Down Toffee Apple Cake is the perfect use for over-ripe apples.
After getting back from a week on holiday – to France, where I couldn’t unfortunately have a tarte tatin, because of all that gluten – I looked at the fruit bowl and realised we hadn’t eaten all the apples before we left. They were now a little too soft to enjoy (nothing is worse than a floury apple) so I decided to try an upside down apple cake.
Usually upside-down cakes are made with pineapple, but combining it with a tarte tatin and making it with sliced apples works just as well – the toffee makes it extra tasty!
This would go great as a treat around Bonfire Night, a more grown-up version of sticky toffee apples (or candy apples, to our American friends) that you won’t break your teeth on, but to be honest it’s delicious and works all year round.
