After all , who wants to spend all that time in the kitchen when you could be outside! The cake is soft and luscious and the strawberries , OH the strawberries!!

Strawberry Upside Down Cake
e-How


Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons butter (for the topping)
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup of Sliced Strawberries
1 1/3 Cup All-Purpose Flour
2/3 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
2/3 Cup Milk
1/4 Soft Butter (for the cake)
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
9 inch round cake dish


Directions:

Topping –

In a 9 inch round cake dish, melt the 2 tablespoons of butter, mix in the brown sugar, add the strawberries, and then set it to the side.

Cake Mix –

In a mixing bowl stir the flour, sugar, and baking powder together. Then add the milk, butter, egg, and vanilla. Mix with a mixer until smooth. Then gently pour over the fruit in the cake pan. You may want to use a larger spoon. The key is for the fruit to stay on the bottom, and not to mix with the batter.

Baking/Serving –

Pre-Heat the oven to 350. Bake in the oven at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes. Check the middle of the cake with a toothpick or knife to see if it’s done. When done remove from the oven and place on a rack to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Then flip it over on to a serving plate, and remove the pan.

I'm ready for spring to come to the northeast too, but I'd eat that strawberry upside down cake in any weather.

You poor thing stuck in the gloomy weather, at least the cake and the salad can cheer both of you.
They look beautiful and delicious.

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

Yummy. I love those cakes. I really want one now. I have to go seek out some good strawberries.

Hang in there with the weather. Better days are coming. I find spring to be a torturous season because you never know if the nice weather is here to stay, but the sun is shining today, and even though it's rather windy, it's not too cold.

Ivy said...

I love all of them but the strawberry cake sounds amazing.

My New 30 said...

It's a world of strawberries! I particularly like the strawberry upside down cake. I'd be tempted to add some lemon zest to the cake too.

That's definitely one way to brighten up your chilly weather! That upside down strawberry cake looks like a must-make for me. Love the idea of cinnamon tortilla chips w/ that salsa too!

Psychgrad said...

I made a variation of the upsidedown cake...I'll let you know how it turns out!

Lisa said...

Great Spring recipes! I especially like the Cinnamon Tortilla Chips and Apple Salsa. I used to make Cinnamon Tortilla Chips but had forgotten all about them....and the Apple Salsa makes my mouth water.
