FAQs

What Is An Upside Down Cake Anyway?

An upside-down cake is simply a cake that is baked with the “toppings” on the bottom of the pan and the cake batter on top. It is prepared and baked and then flipped over before serving. So those toppings that disappeared under the batter are beautifully sitting on top now.

What pan is best for upside down cake?

9inch round baking pan is the perfect size for this recipe.

Do you flip a cake when it’s hot or cold?

Allow the cake to cool for about 10-15 minutes.

How To Flip An Upside Down Cake

I get that people are intimidated to flip an upside-down cake. Here’s how you flip it:
Put a plate over your cake pan and, using both hands, flip. Now the plate should be on the bottom and the cake pan on top (but upside down.) Carefully lift up the cake pan and your cake should slip right out!
