Apple Upside-down cake | Kukskitchen

This is a photograph I took before my blogging days. I absolutely love fruit in cakes. Gives a sense of guilt free pleasure although the cake is still very caloric.

A few things before we start:

  • You can sprinkle 1/4 cups of nuts along with the apples for an extra crunch and taste.
  • Remember this is an upside down cake. Layer the apple slices carefully as this would be your presentation side.
  • Best served warm.

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
