Lemon Apple Upside-Down Bundt Cake (eggless) #BundtBakers

Upside down cakes are my favorites.. And, I mostly love about it is a Gooey taste of my favorite fruits, mixed with the flavor of cake.. It can be created with lots of variations..

One of my favorite upside down cake is with Apple... So, thought of creating it with Lemon... A simple one ingredient can completely alter the flavor of the cake... I mostly work with eggless cakes..

Our this week's ingredient is Lemon... The fact, that I love Lemon.. I knew this is going to be one of my favorite cake... Love the way, flavors blended...  It was so delicious, that I know very soon I am going to make it again... This month is hosted by Anne.. You can follow her blog in From My Sweet Heart.

Directions you need to follow - 
  • Mix All Purpose flour with baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In another bowl, mix melted butter with sugar, cooking oil, lemon juice and Lemon peel.
  • In the end, add grated apple leaving aside 1tbsp of grated apple for garnishing. (I left 1 thick slice of apple ungrated, and grated just before garnishing, as apple turns black very fast).
  • Fold dry ingredients in wet ingredients.
  • Now, slowly add yogurt part by part, to make a batter,, which is more like a pancake batter.
  • Grease your Bundt pan, and place apple slices crisscross, and cover the base.

  • Pour the batter on the apple slices, and cover it completely.

  • Preheat the oven, and bake the cake at 375 degrees, or at medium temperature of your oven.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until your cake has passed the toothpick test.
  • After taking out from oven, let the cake rest for 10 minutes... It will leave the sides...
  • Turn it on a cooling rack, and let it cool down for 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat 1/2 cup of whipping cream till boiling point.
  • Turn the cake back in oven with apple side up.
  • Pour the hot cream on the cake, and let it soak completely...
  • After 30 minutes or so, put the cake in the fridge completely packed.
  • Next day, whip the rest 1/2 cup of whipping cream with 1/4 cup of sugar to soft peaks. 
  • Decorate your Bundt the way you want, and put some grated apple on top..
  • Enjoy...

NOTE- Leaving the Bundt for a day, enhances the taste and also helped the flavors of Apple and Lemon blend properly.
