Last week I’ve spent a few days in Palermo and enjoyed the sunshine there to the fullest. What a beautiful city with so much delicious food Luckily we walked so a lot…
Now that I’m back home I’m missing the early summer weather so I decided to bake my own ‘sunshine’. And this cake is definitely summery with that stunning color and its fruity and slightly sour taste!
Upside Down Cake with strawberries
- 25 g butter
- 25 g brown sugar
- 175 g strawberries
- 2 eggs
- 75 g sugar
- 1 pinch of salt
- 115 g soft butter
- 125 g natural yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 130 g flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 175 ° C and line a springform pan (20 cm diameter) with baking paper.
For the batter, beat eggs, sugar and a pinch of salt until creamy. Add the soft butter, yogurt and vanilla and stir well. Mix the flour and baking powder, add to the batter and stir briefly until it’s smooth.
Pour the batter carefully over the strawberries and bake in a hot oven for about 40 minutes. Leave to cool for about 10 minutes, then loosen the springform and turn onto a plate. Best served still slightly warm.
Have you ever baked ‘upside down’? I really like the whole thing – especially in combination with a yogurt batter. You should try the recipe as well with other fruits like mango or pineapple!
Stay sweet & HAPPY BAKING!
