Prajitura rasturnata cu mere

This is a quick upside-down apple pie recipe , made with rye flour and lots of cinnamon! It has an amazing taste! 

Say hello to Mishkin my cat! Even he loves this upside-down apple pie and trust me he is very picky when it comes to food. He just couldn’t leave it out of sight. Isn’t he cute? He’s not always like this you know, peaceful and quiet…oh no.. he’s a trouble-maker, but I love him anyway. 🙂

I don’t usually eat baked goodies because I’m not a huge fan of flour-based desserts, but this upside-down apple pie is definitely a must-try! It is just perfect for this season and you’ll love how all flavors blend so well together. Also, you can substitute apples with any other fruit you like; I also tried it with sour cherries and peaches and it was just as great. I will not make a habit from eating baked desserts (I still prefer them raw) but from time to time a warm dessert like this one is just perfect, especially now when it’s so cold outside.

So for all you animal lovers and sweet tooths out there, here’s a lovely upside-down apple pie to warm your souls and put a sweet smile on your faces!
