We discovered a new cooking show on PBS called Jazzy Vegetarian. Laura Theodore made this delicious Apple Cake that isn't too sweet. Of course you can always add more sugar but I don't think you'll need it.
Upside Down Apple Cake http://jazzyvegetarian.com/
3 medium apples, sliced
1 medium apple, diced
2 tablespoons soy butter
4 teaspoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
2 bananas, mashed
1 cup pastry flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup raisins (I used dry cherries)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup vanilla soy/almond milk (I used regular and added vanilla)
1/4 cup olive oil
Grease an 8x8 pan then add parchment paper.
Slice 3 apples. Heat pan and add 2 T. soy butter to pan. Melt butter, add 4 T. brown sugar and cinnamon. Heat until all is melted, add apples and stir. Take off heat and let soak. Add apples to prepared pan.
Mash 2 bananas and whip with fork, set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In separate bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt and whisk together. Add l apple diced, raisins, 1/2 cup brown sugar and mix.
Add soy milk, vanilla, 1/4 cup olive oil and mashed banana. Batter should be thick - don't stir too much.
Bake 50-55 minutes. Let cool, then flip over the cake onto dish so sliced caramelized apples are on top.
