This recipe just happened suddenly out of nowhere 😀
I had no plans to bake anything for a while. But while browsing cakes on pinterest, the enthusiast in me decided to bake this for our weekend breakfast 🙂
Our entire house smelled wonderful when this cake was in the oven. Cinnamon, brown sugar and a combination of your favorite fruit and nuts. Yummy!!
This Fruit and nut upside down cake can be customized as per your liking and convenience. I used a combination of dates, cranberries, almonds and walnuts. It came out beautifully.
It’s a simple yet impressive dessert for a breakfast or a brunch or with your evening tea 😀
I think I have a little obsession with caramel these days. Because this Fruit and nut upside down cake has a lovely caramelized crunchy top.
Basically you make a brown sugar and butter syrup, pour it in the prepared pan. Top it with a bunch of fruits and nuts and cover it with a vanilla cake batter. Voila! The cinnamon and lemon zest add a lovely zing to the otherwise sweet fruity cake. Gorgeous!!
People who don’t like baking can never understand when I say a cake looks gorgeous or beautiful 😛
But my family loved and appreciated it totally. Believe me, you will love it. So get set and bake!
This is one cake where you don’t have to worry about the fruits sinking to the bottom of your pan 😛
Jokes apart, it’s a quick recipe that yields a gorgeous Fruit and nut upside down cake which is simply scrumptious.
Enjoy a slice with your morning tea or devour it with a dollop of whipped cream after a boring meal!
I had mine with my morning coffee, lazily reading a book 😀 . Perfect idea for a happy sunday!
