This is very nice and quite simple.
Feijoa Upside Down Cake
Follow the instructions precisely.
50 g Unsalted Butter
1/2 cup (80g) soft brown sugar
6 large feijoas peeled and thinly sliced lenghtwise and tossed in
juice of a half of lemon to prevent browning.
50g unsalted butter softened - not melted
1/c cup castor sugar
1 egg
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup golden syrup
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda (not baking powder)
1/2 cup milk.
Preheat oven 170c
Grease and line a 24cm springform tin with baking paper.
The topping is first;
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter and brown sugar until sugar has dissolved.
Pour into lined tin.
Arrange Feijoas slices in an overlapping circular pattern on top of melted mixture.
Set aside.
Careful placement of the fruit is a must as this is where the finished beauty lies.
The Cake;
In a large bowl or electric mixer, cream butter and castor sugar together.
In another small bowl, sift together the flour, ginger and cinnamon. Dissolve the baking soda in the milk separately again.
Alternating between the milk and dry ingredients, add to the creamed mixture starting with and finishing with the dry mixture.
Mix until combined, then pour the cake batter carefully over the feijoas in the tin.
Bake for 40 minutes or until springy to touch.
Remove cake from oven and allow to cool.
Before turning cake onto a serving plate, run a knife around the edge to release.
Place the plate over the cake in tin then flip all (tin and plate together) and place the plate side down first.
Carefully release the spring form tin and remove with the baking paper.
Serve with whipped cinnamon cream or custard.
Cinnamon cream is 300ml cream, 2 tsp sifted icing sugar and 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon whisked or whipped together.
