Upside down

 I made an upside down cake with as many of the pears as I could cram into the flan case. First a coating of melted butter and soft brown sugar and on top of that the quartered pears. A two egg Victoria sponge mix,  slackened with milk, coated the pears, and into the oven for forty minutes.

Although there is a lot of soft fruit it holds together well enough to invert onto a plate as soon as it is cool.

It freezes well, although this one didn't get the chance!


  1. I'm reading this while sipping my morning coffee. A slice of pear upside down cake would be perfect right now. It looks delicious!

  2. That is making me hungry. Just as well I have a chicken roasting in the oven.

    1. That is all the pears dealt with for this year and no more fruit to harvest from the garden. From now on we shall nibble away at stored apples and frozen berries.
      Mmm.. chicken in the oven, sounds good!

  3. I am with Melinda above. A slice with my morning coffee would be wonderful!
