Baking: Blood Orange Upside Down Cake

It’s in the oven right now with a few minutes to go. Uses blood oranges that have had peel and pith remove, brown sugar, butter, water for the caramel that holds the oranges to the cake.

Then the usual, flour, butter, salt, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla bean, eggs and buttermilk. Not necessarily in that order. We’ll see how it comes out. Not quite as I expected but it looks interesting. Maybe because I didn’t have brown sugar per se. Dunno.


That’s just the top of the cake. It’s still too warm to eat. But it should cool down at which point we can cut into it. Should be delicious.

  1. Why do I always end up reading your food posts just before I go to bed and end up feeling hungry? That question is rhetorical.
