Upside Down Caramelized Orange Cake

 People romance Chocolate, but I need a zing! A citrus zing, to be precise. If you ever wondered why restaurants feature lemon or orange desserts on their menu... Well, for people like me! Lemon in the summer and oranges in winter!! Aaah! There is something simply divine in that!

My love for oranges is evident in my previous posts. I've made a marmalade , a cake and even a Kheer! Each one delicious in it's own way. I even made a very potent Orange Wine, but more on that later. This morning as the heady aroma of oranges greeted me from the fruit bowl, my heart craved cake. Now, I could go back to any of the previous cake recipes, but where's the fun in that?! 

I wanted to try something new. Something that had not just that citrus hit, but also celebrated the gorgeousness of the fruit. The fact that I've been dying to try a caramelized upside down cake, may or may not have influenced my decision. I used the French Yogurt Cake as my starting point. The flavours in that are just so fresh and citrusy! But i wanted the cake more crumbier and dense, to hold against the orange slices. So a few changes and to my luck, I got an absolutely perfect Upside Down Caramelized Orange Cake. 

Ingredients:
Flour                        1 and 1/2 cups
Semolina                  1/2 cup
Baking Powder        2 tsp      
Baking Soda            1 tsp
Oil                            3/4 cup
Sugar                       1 cup   
Eggs                        2  
Yogurt                     1/4 cup
Oranges                   4 
Brown Sugar          7 Tablespoons

Method:
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C. Sift all the dry ingredients together. Brush a 9 inch springform pan with butter. Sprinkle the brown sugar all over the buttered base. Thinly slice 2 oranges and arrange them over the sugar. Zest the other 2 oranges and rub into the granulated sugar. Once the zest releases it's aroma, beat in the eggs. Once the batter looks thick and creamy, beat in the yogurt. Now add the oil, drizzling a little at a time and beating well with each addition. Gently fold in the dry ingredients. 
Extract 1/4 cup juice from the zested oranges and add it to the batter. Pour the batter over the prepared tin. Bake for 45 minutes. Let it cool before serving it up! 

Notes: You can substitute the Oranges with Kinnows or Mandarins or any other citrus fruits.

  1. The Dutch have for long insisted on maintaining a monopoly on online gambling through the state owned operator De Lotto. They have been challenged by online gambling operators Ladbrokes and Betfair in courts of law. Betfair had applied for a license to operate in the Netherlands almost two years ago and went to the European Court when their application was turned down. Ladbrokes went to court because the Dutch government targeted it for trying to take on board Dutch online gamblers. The Dutch have also been condemned by representative organizations of online gambling. Now for the first time they seem to have found some support.우리카지노 계열 대한민국 최고의 바카라사이트
