Why You Should Make The Recipe
Here are all the reasons to make this delicious and moist fruit upside down cake:
The recipe comes together quickly.
I developed this recipe to take advantage of the wonderful, summer produce available in my part of the world. Oregon grows and harvests some of the best stone fruit and berries in the country.
That being said, I don’t *love* taking on complicated baking projects in the summer heat. Instead, I want something quick and easy. Like this recipe! The recipe is an almost one bowl recipe (you need two bowls total), and comes together with just a whisk. All you need to do is whisk together the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet ingredients in another, and combine them. That’s it! The batter takes just 5 minutes to pull together.
The recipe is infinitely customizable.
When I developed this recipe, I wanted to be able to use whatever fruit I happened to have on hand. I wanted a moist and fluffy vanilla cake that would be able to stand up to the slightly sour, tanginess of fruit like nectarines and sour cherries, as well as the lusciousness of berries like blueberries and more.
And folks, the vanilla cake recipe for this upside down cake does exactly that! The secret? I instruct you to use either buttermilk OR sour cream. These ingredients give the cake a tangy flavor that holds up well against any fruit. You can use either ingredient interchangeably to truly customize the recipe and come up with your own combinations. Like blueberry buttermilk! Or peaches and sour cream!
