I always wanted to bake upside down cakes since it has real fruit studded on the top rather than just adding fruit puree or essence in some cake..You can taste the real fruityness in the cake this way. One of the most popular cake are pineapple upside down cake..I was waiting to bake it for so long and finally I made that happen couple of weeks before. I am also planning to bake apple upside down cake as well mango upside down cake..I will probably make the mango cake tomorrow. Do you have any other upside down cake recipe, tell me I am happy to make them.
Many of you think that this is so hard or tricky to make( I was thinking like that untill I made them), but it is so easy to make, trust me on this guys..You can taste the real pineapple in this truly. The original recipe calls for brown sugar, I know I could never find it here, so I always use jaggery in place of it and it worked really good..I highly recommend you to try this and tell me how it turned out.
