Greek upside-down apple chocolate pie


  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • Beat the butter and sugar on medium to high speed, using the paddle attachment, until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, buttermilk and honey.
  • Beat on medium speed, until completely incorporated.
  • Stop the mixer, scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula and stir.
  • Set mixing bowl aside until needed.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
  • Finely chop the milk chocolate and add it to the bowl. You can leave some pieces a little larger also.

  • Mix with a spatula, until all of the ingredients are completely combined.
  • Grease a 25 cm spring form pan with butter and set aside.
  • Place a pan over medium heat and add the sugar and salt.
  • As soon as the sugar starts to melt and starts turning into caramel, add the butter and gently stir to make the caramel sauce.
  • Watch it closely and as soon as it seems like it is might begin to burn, remove from heat.
  • Pour the caramel sauce into the prepared spring form pan and spread evenly.
  • Prepare the apples by removing the core and seeds.
  • Cut them in half and thinly slice them with a sharp knife or a mandolin.
  • Arrange them nicely over the caramel, placing them very close to one another creating a circle, starting from the outer edge and moving towards the middle.
  • Cover with the dough and gently spread it evenly over the apples, making sure not to ruin the apple arrangement.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and let it cool for at least 15 minutes.
  • Turn out on to a serving platter or large serving plate.
  • Serve with ice cream, garnish with mint leaves and drizzle with caramel sauce.
