Banana Blueberry Upside Down Cake


I made this  'Banana Blueberry Upside Down Cake'  based on the recipe of my previous post of  Pineapple Upside Down Cake.  Prior to that I've also tried baking this cake with peaches and I find that they all are delicious in their own way as each of them have a fruity flavour of their own.



For ease of reference, here's the recipe.

Ingredients for the Topping    
                                        
Cream the following till spreadable
  • 2 oz butter/margarine
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar






Cake batter
6 oz plain flour
4 oz butter/margarine
3.1/2 to 4 oz  caster sugar
2 eggs
1.1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
2  Tbsp milk
1 tsp orange/lemon rind
1 tsp vanilla
4 to 5 ripe bananas depending on size and length
125 gm fresh blueberries
Brown sugar or Demarara sugar to sprinkle (optional)

Method
1.  Coat the bottom of an 8 inch square cake pan with creamed butter and brown sugar                             
2.  Lightly coat the blueberries with some flour from the recipe. 
3.  Peel the bananas and split into 2, lengthwise.  Arrange on the bottom of the pan.
4.  Sprinkle the flour coated blueberries on top of the bananas. (Also sprinkle on some brown or demerara sugar if desired).
5.  Spread the cake batter on top. (Click  'here'  for the method of the cake batter).
6.  Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 45 to 50 mins.
7.  Test with a skewer if it comes out clean.
8.  When cake tests done, invert it immediately onto a serving plate.
9.  Leave for a few minutes before removing the cake pan.
10.Let cool and serve

    Tastes sweet and a bit sourish, chilled is better.

    Thank you. If the bananas were longer, then just put 2 in a row, will also look nice.

Traditional Chinese baked sponge cake ~ 烤鸡蛋糕

These old fashioned Chinese baked sponge cakes bring back fond memories of my childhood of  yesteryears.  They taste somewhat like the CNY Kuih Bahulu and I remember snacking on them when I was little.  I've tried making this twice, googled and tweaked the recipe from here and there but the cakes turned out chewy instead of soft and moist.  I was about to raise the white flag when I told myself that I might be third time lucky and thankfully I managed to get what I wanted on my third attempt.  So perserverence does pay!

The recipe may look easy but the beating of the eggs to 'ribbon' stage and the folding/whisking of the flour into the egg mixture can be tricky ...... that's why I had to try thrice before I could achieve what I wanted.  I kept two cakes in a container and they were even softer the next day.... Yum is the word!

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
