There is something unique about the simple elegance that comes with an upside-down cake. Not too many desserts, maybe except for a fruit tart, let the ingredients do the talking. Upside-down cakes don’t have icing or frosting, they aren’t delicately assembled, and they don’t have a dozen layers. Typically there is a cake layer baked on top of a fruit layer, and once prepared, it is flipped upside-down and devoured. Even the name is simple, it is what it is.

These recipes for upside-down cakes will have you slicing seasonal fruits while preheating your oven in no time! You might want to start with the OG, the Pineapple Upside-down Cake, and then branch out to a winter citrus, or bourbon praline variety. Explore with determination!
