eggless apple upside down cake

while developing recipes, especially baking ones, sometimes they are a success and sometimes they are failures. more so when one has to make a cake or bread or muffins which does not use eggs nor dairy products.

generally when making the batter, i come to know if the cake will be a hit or miss. when i have that feeling that the cake is going to be a flop… bingo.. the cake does become a flop when baked.

so when making this apple upside down cake, i knew it would not be a disaster recipe. what i did not know was that it will be a hit at home. the cake was so much liked, that i have got apples again to make this cake for easter.

in spite of not using eggs, the cake is light, soft and has a good crumb. almost like cakes baked with eggs.

the secret to this light & soft texture in the cake is due to the addition of lemon juice and water. this cake is made up of ingredients that are easily available in your kitchen and you don’t have to buy anything special to make this cake. if you are thinking of making apple based recipes then there are few more options for you:

  1. eggless apple cake
  2. eggless apple muffins
  3. apple halwa recipe
  4. apple milkshake

since jaggery is easily available in india, i have added organic powdered jaggery to the cake batter. in absence of jaggery the cake can also be sweetened with sugar or powdered sugar.

if you don’t have apples, then make the same cake with pears or pineapple and it would still be delicious. you can also use tinned pineapple slices. i have also posted recipe of eggless pineapple upside down cake.

slice and serve the apple upside down cake as an after meal dessert or with tea or coffee.

  1. Hi! Just made this yesterday and it turned out very well. Made a small variation- used 1/2 cup of coconut flour, 1/2 cup of wheat flour and 1/2 cup of maida . Wanted to try reducing the gluten content. Inspite of the change, it ws soft, moist and very tasty.
    Thanks once again fr the great recipe.

    • thanks devi for sharing the variations you made to the apple cake. it will help readers too. i am glad that the recipe worked well with the changes.
      welcome and happy baking.

  2. how much time should i keep the cake in mircowave?

    • you can only bake the cake in the convection mode of the microwave oven. so the time taken will vary by 25 to 35 minutes. i cannot give the exact time as each oven is different. but the recipe may not work in the microwave mode.

  3. Hi! How can we make the recipe in a non vegan way? Cause I want to use milk instead of oil.
    Thanks.

    • for a non vegan recipe, i will have to test it. but instead of water you can use milk. oil will be needed in the recipe.

  4. I’ve tried and loved many recipes from your site. This was the first one that was disappointing. I’m a pretty seasoned baker but I generally don’t make that many eggless recipes, so I was excited to try this out. Unfortunately, the taste of the atta is overwhelming and the whole thing tastes a little too much like a jaggery pancake rather than a typical cake.

    • ramya, when making eggless cakes and that too with atta, a few things have to be paid attention too. firstly do not over do the mixing or folding part. secondly the quality of atta makes some difference. some atta flours absorb more liquids and some do not. it also depends on whether they are chakki ground or machine ground and how finely or coarsely the wheat grains are ground. if there is more fibre ratio in the atta, it will absorb more liquids. if the batter has been mixed too much, then the batter will start resembling and becoming like chapati dough, which results in the formation of gluten strands in the dough. thus when baking the cake does not rise and becomes like a lumpy doughy mass of cooked atta.

      also some whole wheat flour have a strong nutty flavor and that also comes through while baking. but if you add flavorings and spices, it does mask the aroma of atta. so when making cakes with whole wheat flour, do remember these suggestions and i hope they are helpful to you.

  5. Hii..!!Are silicon moulds r helpful in removing the cake smoothly ???

    • i guess so. cannot say hundred percent as i have never used them for baking. but for homemade chocolates, they are easy to unmould.
