Upside-Down Cherry Cake

Topping
 400 g cherries, frozen or fresh
 50 g unsalted butter, diced into very small pieces
 50 g soft brown sugar
Butter sponge
 115 g unsalted butter, at room temperature
 150 g caster sugar
 2 eggs, at room temperature
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 195 g plain flour (1 1/2 cups)
 1 ½ tsp baking powder
 ¼ tsp salt
 120 ml milk, at room temperature (1/2 cup)
Topping
1

De-stone the cherries. Then preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (355 Fahrenheit) and line a 23cm (9inch) cake tin with baking paper.

2

Disperse the butter and brown sugar into the lined baking tin and place in the oven for 5 minutes or until the butter and sugar have melted. Take out of the oven and set aside to cool.

3

Place the cherries on top of the butter and sugar base. Don't turn off the oven yet.

Butter sponge
4

Beat the butter and sugar using a stand mixer or an electric mixer until it is light, pale and fluffy.

5

Beat the eggs one at a time and then add the vanilla extract.

6

Prepare the dry ingredients. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together.

7

Sift a third of the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients (butter mixture) and fold it in gently with a spatula. Then add half of the milk and mix in gently. Alternate between the dry mixture, then milk, then dry until the ingredients just come together.

8

Pour the sponge batter into the prepared tin with the cherries. Bake for 38 minutes in the preheated oven or until a skewer comes out clean. Place baking foil on top of the cake if the top of the cake browns too much.

9

Let cool for around 10-15 minutes before inverting onto a drying rack. Use a oven mitt as it'll still be hot. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store in the fridge.
