TWD - Rhubarb Upside Down Brown Sugar Cake


For Tuesday with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi) this week, our recipe is Rhubarb Upside Down Brown Sugar Cake.

This cake was simple to make, amd took just over an hour, including preparation.  My baking time was more like 40 minutes than the 20 minutes stated by Dorie. I started making the cake batter while the rhubarb was stewing in its juices so that I could streamline the process (as you do when you start baking at 9pm).



The resulting cake was beautiful, light and moist with a caramel flavour from the brown sugar, and the tangy rhubarb topping worked a treat as a contrast to the sponge.  I used raspberry jam as a glaze and that worked fine too.

To see what the other TWD bakers thought of this cake, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

That looks really good and sounds nice and straighforward. It worries me a little when cooking time vary so much with recipes though!

Now I know why you are so productive in the kitchen - you start baking at the time I start thinking about bed ;) This looks like a delicious result for staying up late though!

Love your cake! I think Dorie's suggestion of the jelly topping really ups the cake a notch. And yes, wasn't it easy?

Mine needed some more time in the oven, too! I'm a fan of rhubarb desserts and this didn't disappoint! Glad you could get your hands on some rhubarb :)

Oh, that looks scrumptious. I love a good upside down cake and that is one. I often find it takes me longer than a recipe says. But I am just slow!!

It looks so good! I want to make this cake again before the rhubarb is gone here. I also think the cake would work well with other fruits, too.
