The best easy apple cake Fast2eat

Fast, easy, delicious and pretty, this upside-down cake is freaking fantastic—dense, cinnamony hunks of apple, crunchy from the outside and ridiculously moist inside.

It’s perfect for any time of day, everything from the brunch to an afternoon snack to a warm and comforting dessert. I also like to make it to bring to a party or get together.

Enjoy this cake cold from the fridge, at room temperature or warm, with or without ice cream and/or lightly sweetened whipped cream (Chantilly).

  • Cool completely before running a knife between cake and pan and unmolding onto a platter. Unmolding hot can crumble everything.
  • Optional: To decorate Drizzle all over your cake. Using a fine sieve, dust with Confectioners' sugar. Or Mix confectioners sugar with enough boiling water to make a runny glaze.
  • Cake can be served warm, cold, or room temperature, with or without lightly sweetened whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream.


When making the cake in an Air Fryer, please read the success tips at How to bake a cake in the air fryer.
Use Macintosh (my favourite for this cake) or Gala apples, Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Stayman Winesap, Red Delicious and Fuji, or a mix of whatever looks good.
