3. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add 2 tablespoons of sugar and stir until the sugar begins to melt. Then send the apples to the pan, mix and hold over medium heat so that the apples do not burn, but only become soft and wrapped in caramel. When the sugar has melted a little, add the cinnamon to the pan and stir.

9. Lubricate the baking dish with butter. I use a non-stick pan, so I won't grease the bottom and sides. Put the prepared caramelized apples on the bottom of the mold.

10. Pour the dough on top. Send the cake to the oven, preheated to 180 degrees, for 25-30 minutes. The cooking time will of course depend on the diameter of your cake as well as the oven itself, so keep an eye on the dough and check for doneness with a wooden skewer. Pierce the dough in the middle, if the skewer is dry, that means the cake is ready.
