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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
