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.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
