Coming to the alphabet U, I picked a cake from United Kingdom. Upside Down Cake. Well the most popular is the Pineapple one but now you get to see a lot of variations. I wanted to bake a traditional cake and yet something different, so I gave a slight twist to this cake. I added Oreos . Somehow the chocolate element makes any cake or dessert more desirable.
Upside down cakes are cakes that are baked in a single pan and then served upside down. One can use a loose bottom or spring foam pan to make it easy to un mould. The pan should be greased and then a layer of fruit should be placed and then the batter is poured. The fruit layer should be done in a decorative style as the cake is going to be inverted and this is going to be the face of the cake. A layer of caramel or sugar could be the base and then the next layer could be fruits, the variations are umpteen, and one just needs to get innovative.
I baked the cake in a loose bottom tin. After greasing I sprinkled some flour. (this was a mistake ) I placed some chocolate Oreos and then placed the pineapple slices and cherries in the center. I poured the batter and baked the cake. After I removed the cake from the pan I saw the Oreos but the pineapple slices went down, the flour on the cake showed ( that’s why I said it was a mistake ). After de moulding I added some cherries. The cake turned out absolutely fantastic with the flavors. The baked pineapple slices, cherries tasted awesome and the in between Oreo wow , it was a treat. So let’s get to the recipe for Upside Down Cake with Pineapple and Oreos for A – Z Baking around the World.
