  1. This cake looked absolutely gorgeous in the pan when it came out of the oven, and then disaster struck. It was well cooled before the attempt to remove it. As I lifted the pan from the inverted cake, half of it slid off to the side, leaving the other half intact. There was no way of salvaging it. Every time I tried to lift the crumbled side back into position, it slid back down. The good news was I was able to cut away the the good half and serve it to my guests — it tasted delicious!. The other half ended up on a plate and my family enjoyed eating the remnants despite it’s appearance. Not sure I know what went wrong, or what I could do differently to prevent another mishap. Not sure I want to attempt this one again without knowing the hidden secret.

  2. Shawna,

    I tried this recipe with your mishap in mind and it didn’t slide off. This is what I did that I think might help:

    You know how the recipe says not to let any of the apples touch the side of the cake? Well, I thought that maybe the apple’s in the middle of the cake might cause it to slide, so what I did is poured the 1/3 batter and arranged the apples leaving about a 1 1/2 space all around.
    Then, before pouring the other 1/2 of the batter over the apples, I first poured the batter around the 1 1/2 gap on the sides, then poured the batter over the apples and repeated this process.

    What happened is that when the cake was ready, there was a thick layer of dough all around the cake that held it all together. When I cut the slices and served, it remained in tacted because of that thick “crust” around the cake which my boys loved cuz they asked how I was able to make it with apple filling 🙂

    I hope this helped. Your comment helped me!

    Thanks for this website, it’s great and has helped me a lot!!
