Chia Almond Butter Fruit Dip

This is a yummy fruit dip to make and makes eating an apple seem not so ordinary.  You’ll want to let the yogurt mixture sit for an hour or two to let the chia soften.

Grandma’s Cookbook – Caramel Apple Upside-Down Cake

 It’s time again for the recipe that caught my attention from the 1940 cookbook my Grandma handed down.  This month I saw a recipe for an Apple Upside-Down Cake.  I changed it up a bit and it was delicious.

  1. 1/4 cup butter
  2. 1 cup brown sugar
  3. 2 large apples
  4. 1 1/2 cups Spelt flour or flour of your choice
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 3 tsp baking powder
  7. 1/4 cup butter
  8. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  9. 2 eggs, well beaten
  10. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  11. 1/2 tsp vanilla
  12. 2/3 cup water
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. To make the caramel - Melt 1/4 cup butter in oven proof skillet or baking pan. Add 1 cup of brown sugar and stir until melted. Cool.
  3. Peel, core and slice apples. Place on top of caramel.
  4. Sift flour, salt and baking powder together in a bowl. Set aside.
  5. Cream butter with sugar until fluffy.
  6. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  7. Add sifted dry ingredients and water, alternately in small amounts, beating well after each addition.

Upside down apple cake - caramel
Melt the butter and sugar in an oven-proof skillet or pan. I found my cast iron pan worked well.

Apple Cake - finished caramel
The finished caramel will look like this. Set aside while prepping the apples.

Apple Cake - sliced apples
Peel, core and slice apples and place on top of caramel.

Apple Cake - batter on top of the apples
Place the batter on top of the apples. Now it’s ready for the oven.

Apple Cake - before flip
Flip onto a serving platter or pan when cake comes out of the oven. Be careful – it’s very hot. But this needs to be done because caramel will harden quickly and once it’s hard the cake won’t release from the pan.

I had never heard of apples being used in this type of cake. Has anyone had it before?
