Upside Down Cherry Almond Cake

Upside Down Cherry Almond Cake - My Yellow Farmhouse.com

Recipe features a dense German-Style cake which can also be used for Strawberry Shortcake!

As always, I couldn’t wait to finish my photos so I could cut myself a rather huge piece of this cake, loaded with an equally huge amount of whipped cream!!  I highly suggest you do the same… or place a very large scope of vanilla ice cream on top, especially while the cake is still warm!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (21 oz). can  cherry pie filling    ++  I like Comstock
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup softened butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. almond flavoring
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 5 Tbs. milk

DIRECTIONS

As I mention at the top of this post, this is a very dense cake which would also be excellent for Strawberry Shortcake etc.

 9” round cake pan, buttered    Oven at 375F       Bake for 20 – 25  minutes

Mix cherry pie filling with ¼ cup sliced almonds in a small bowl. Pour into buttered cake pan.  Set aside.

With mixer on medium, cream 1/4 cup softened butter and 1/3 cup sugar a few minutes until fluffy.  Add 2 large eggs and 1/3 tsp. almond flavoring. Beat for about a minute until well mixed.  Add 4 Tbs. milk, 1½ cups flour, 2 tsp. baking powder and 1/8 tsp.salt.  Start beating with mixer on low, then finish mixing on medium until just blended. ++ Remember to occasionally scrape sides of bowl.

Spoon cake batter over cherries and almonds. (Batter will be thick.) Using a large spoon, drop batter over cherries and almonds.  Spread batter gently with a knife.

Bake at 375F for 20 – 25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.  ++ No toothpicks? Use a small sharp knife.

Once cake comes out of the oven, place a serving plate on top and – remembering to use pot holders – quickly tip cake over.

A good amount of the cherries & sliced almonds might remain in the pan. Not to worry…. just scope it out with a large spoon and spread on top of the cake.         Enjoy!!
