Upside down Apple Pie

Another Apple pie recipe!  This french classic is infused with caramel in every bite. Made with caramelized apples and baked upside down in a bed of caramel it is by far one of my favorite. If like me you also like apple pie you can also go check out my Yogurt Apple Cake and Gluten Free Apple Pie recipe ! 🙂


  • 6 apples peeled and thinly sliced ( pink lady or ganny smith)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 dough for pie crust

1 . Melt butter in a 10 inch spring form pan over medium to medium high heat.

2 . Add 1 cup sugar and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until sugar is melted and begins to turn golden brown. Remove from heat.

3 .  Nicely arrange apples around this edge of pan. Then, fill the middle with the remaining apples slices. Add a second layer of apple ( this second layer does not need to be pretty since you won’t see it after flipping the pie).

4 . At this point, the caramel might look like it’s hardened but that’s OKAY, it will loosen up as the cooking and baking proceed. Cover the pan with foil, put the pan back on heat and cook apple for 5 to 10 minutes, until apples have softened.

5 . Preheat oven to 400F. Remove pan from the heat and cover immediately with the pie dough (be careful not to burn yourself). Roll the edges of the dough against the edges of the pan. With the tip of a knife, drill a small hole in the center of the dough to allow the steam to escape.

5 . Bake for 40 minutes until the crust is golden. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes and then flip it. Scrape out any apples or caramel that might’ve stuck to skillet, and put them back into place on the tart. Don’t wait much longer or the caramel will stick to the pan.

Add some vanilla ice cream over that and you’ll be heaven.




Gluten Free Apple Pie

Hello everyone,

It’s almost Christmas and therefore it’s time to share some lovely recipes to share with friends and family.For my first blog post I decided to share with you my gluten-free apple pie recipe. In France, most of apple pies don’t have a dough on top which make them a bit lighter. The secret of a good gluten-free pie is its crust. This one crust is really easy to make with simple ingredients. Hope you will enjoy!

Prep time 15 minutes
food processor or blender


  • 2 cups of almond flour
  • ¼  cup of rolled oat
  • ½ cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of butter
  • 3 apples
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon of cane sugar

In the food processor, add the almond flour, the rolled oat, the powder sugar and the egg and mix well. Then add the butter and mix until you get a crumble crust. In a greased pie dish, add the crumb and press it you get something uniform. Then place the dish in the fridge or freezer for 10-15 min. Cut the three apples and in a bowl mix it with the sugar and the cinnamon. Place the apples in the pie dish in circles. Bake for 40-50 minutes until apples and crust are golden.
