Mango Upside-Down Cake
I Heart Mango!
Even upside down!

Mango Upside-Down Cake

Can you believe my blog is almost one year old?! Oh the amount of butter, flour and eggs I've used this year!

My new blog year's resolution is to tackle the "I'm-so-intimidate-I-run-for-the-hills" pie crust and tarts. If master foodie, P prize winning J Gold can't master it, I don't hold out much hope. However, I AM a librarian like his mom so perhaps that is the secret! :)

But, until then, I tried a recipe I had trouble with before. It's the Fruit Upside Down Cake from Baking Illustrated (page 332). You can use delicious pineapples, peaches, plums or mango. I opted for mango as they are probably the world's best fruit (well, until I head to the Farmer's Market and start eating the pluots, apricots, white nectarines...oh, I'm weak in the knees thinking about the upcoming fruit season...)

Last time I tried this, I underbaked it and was left with a ring of cake. This time, it turned out okay!

A mixture of brown sugar and butter are caramelized and then placed on the bottom of a 9x3 pan. Then the batter is added and baked off!

I'm a little afraid of upside down cake but your cake is so pretty that I'm going to have to try it. The caramel and fruit look so yummy together!
