Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Strawberry upside down cake is a fun twist on a pineapple upside down cake. It’s super easy to make and looks great in a homemade sort of way. Jack absolutely loves making this cake. It’s great on it’s own and even better with fresh whipped cream. Enjoy!

Total time: 1 hour
Serves: 12
  • For the topping:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup strawberries (sliced)
  • For the cake:
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup white sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Whizz together the flour, sugar, baking power and butter.
  3. Add the milk, eggs and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into a greased tin of any shape. We prefer bunting tins like the one below.
  5. Add the strawberries [they'll sink] and some swirls of strawberry sauce. [We use ice cream syrup topping but melted strawberry jam will work too!]
  6. Bake in the over for 30 minutes. Leave to cool for another 10 and carefully flip the cake over onto a plate and remove the tin. Slice the top to create a flat surface.
  7. After it cools, add a few more strawberries and sauce, then sprinkle with icing sugar for a final flourish!
