Apple upside down small cake is a  rustic sweet. It needs only a few ingredients but all are good quality.

My twist are rice flour and buckwheat flour, naturally gluten free, rich in nutrients and healthy. The sweetness and lightness of the rice flour, combined with the flavor of buckwheat flour, gives this eggs-free cake a smooth texture and a mild flavor. Perfect to be served as a dessert.
