    In many regards this is similar to an upside down cake but rather than the typical pineapple it is a combination of apples, walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon.

    Serves: 12 

    • Base
    • 60g butter
    • 1/3 cup (50g) brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 12 pecan halfs
    • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into wedges
