TWD: Plum Upside Down Cake


This was supposed to be a nectarine upside down cake.I had some plums that were too sour for snacking, so I used those instead. It turned out pretty well. I had a hard time telling for sure when the cake was done, so I think I undercooked it. The middle fell down after it came out of the oven. Oh well, at least it still tasted pretty good!


The layers of plums looked so pretty that I had to take a picture!
The recipe can be found at the double trouble kitchen or the little french bakery



This wasn't the most photogenic cake, but it was delicious.

  2. Yeah, I agree, not the most photogenic cake! I took a heck of a lot of photos to get a few decent ones. Mine took a lot longer in the oven than the recipe stated. Glad you enjoyed...it sounds lovely with plums :)

  3. Using the plums was a great idea - this was great recipe for using up fruit that wasn't quite pristine enough to eat on its own.
    I am sure it was absolutely delicious!

  7. Plums would be a great addition. I think several bakers struggled with the time. I baked mine in a smaller pan--and some in a 6 inch pan. It still baked longer than the recipe stated.
    But it was a delicious cake!

  12. My middle fell also. It's just a thing with upside down cakes, I think. Anyway, I bet this was delish.

  17. It looks great. I am not sure I baked mine correctly either, it was kind of a trickier one I thought. Taste is all that matters though! I bet the plums were delicious!

  18. I'm hesitant to make this with so many bakers having problems with it being underbaked and falling! I will be making this this weekend, also using plums. At least it tasted good!

    1. Just make sure to bake it until the toothpick is 100% clean. I usually take mine out when it's just a little moist, and that was wrong for this cake.
