Chocolate Upside Down Cake
Chocolate cake tops sliced apples - an unusual combination that really works.
thick sliced peeled apples
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch square pan in the oven. Remove and add the brown sugar and lemon juice. Arrange apples on top of the sugar mixture.
Mix flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa and sugar together in a medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture looks like fine bread crumbs.
Beat milk, egg and vanilla together with a fork and add to the dry ingredients. Stir just enough to blend. Spoon over the apples and spread evenly.
Bake for about 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Set on a rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes, then turn upside down onto a serving plate. Let it sit for 2 or 3 minutes so that all the syrup mixture and apples drop out. Serve warm.
