Green Apple and Poppy Seed Upside-down Cake with Honey and Creme Fraiche


This cake is deliciously moist thanks to the syrup which sinks into it as it bakes. Sweet cinnamon, tart apples and gently fragrant honey offer a sophisticated and unusual flavour combination. I love the little black specks from the poppy seeds, which give the cake a subtle crunch, and tangy creme fraiche is the best accompaniment to a generous slice.
