Strawberry Upside-down Cake



Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Strawberry upside down cake is fruity,rich and delicious dessert. I already posted a pineapple upside down cake and pear upside down cake which is more traditional. I love upside down cakes because they are simple and easy to make, yet tastes and looks exotic. Unlike pineapple upside down cake the strawberries does not retain much of its shape and become soft. But it makes the cake soft and tender and the cake absorbs the flavorful caramelized  strawberry syrup.

Ingredients
Strawberries- 1 1/2 cup (cut into half)
Light Brown Sugar- 1/2 cup
Cake flour- 2 cups
Unsalted butter- 6 tbs
Vegetable oil- 3 tbs
Baking powder 1 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda- 1 tsp
Salt-1/3 tsp
Granulated sugar 3/4 cup
Eggs-2
Vanilla essence - 2 tsp

First step is to prepare the cake pan. Heat 1/2 of the butter ( reserve the rest for the cake). Take an eight inch cake pan and pour butter into it and spread the brown sugar evenly. Arrange strawberries cut into half all around the pan and keep aside.
Pre heat oven to 350 degree F. Shift  the dry ingredients, flour,baking powder, soda and salt and keep aside.
Cream together butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat till light and fluffy. Now add dry ingredients and 2-3 tbs of milk and oil and  mix in a low speed. Spoon in the batter and spread over the strawberry slices and spread evenly. Bake  for thirty minutes ( middle rack) or till toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cake in the pan itself for about 2-3 minutes .Run a knife around the edges of the cake pan and gently invert  the cake into a  plate. Allow it to cool down a bit and serve.

Try this..
Enjoy !
