Orange Upside Down Cake

This orange upside down cake is simple and delicious. I adore oranges, especially in desserts. They're fresh, vibrant, tart and sweet at the same time. I have used a few drops of orange blossom extract to really bring out that orangey flavour, but feel free to skip it. This recipe yields enough for one 9 inch cake. 

  1. 3 tbsp demerara sugar
  2. 50ml yogurt
  3. 90g butter
  4. 1 orange, thinly sliced
  5. zest of 1 orange
  6. juice of 1/2 an orange
  7. 1/2 tsp orange blossom extract
  8. 2 eggs
  9. 120g granulated sugar
  10. 120g flour
  11. 1 tsp baking powder
  12. 1/4 tsp baking powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees and line a 9-inch tin with butter.
  2. Evenly spread the demerara sugar at the bottom of the tin.
  3. Melt the butter and add the yogurt. Leave aside to cool. 
  4. Arrange the orange slices on top of the sugar in the tin. 
  5. In a bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, orange extract, zest and juice until very light in colour.
  6. Gently stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Add the butter mixture and mix until smooth. 
  7. Transfer the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 30 minutes. 
  8. Cool the cake completely before removing it from the tin.
