Orange Almond Caramel Upside Down Cake – Cake Slice Bakers May 2011









The cake
It’s cake Slice Baker time again! It has been a very fast month, and has just flown by, I only managed to bake this yesterday, which is a bit last minute for my liking, but I made it in time just!




The toffee drizzled with honey and sprinkled with toasted flaked almonds.
Our cake this month comes from Cake Keeper Cakes by Lauren Chattman published by The Taunton Press 2009. The cake this month is an Orange-Almond-Caramel Upside-Down Cake, from the Round Cakes chapter.






Ready to go.
The bottom layer is an orange and vanilla flavoured cake, tender due to a little sour cream in the batter. Topped off with a sticky, gorgeous, honey toffee flaked almond topping. Yum yum! We liked this one, I’d have been really surprised if we had not – caramel, orange, honey and almonds all go down well here. Teensy bit of whipped cream and dessert is served.


Mmmm!
Now, I’m off to see how my fellow Cake Slice Bakers got on with it. Here is the link for the blogroll if you would like to as well.

Yours is the only one with almonds actually visible. Mine was totally covered in the caramel. Looks wonderful.

Your cake looks great. We loved ours here too.
Great to hear you are in Meldrum - haven't replied to you yet as we were moving house. We were near Maud but now in Westhill. So just moved form one side of you to the other!

Looks good. I saw this book reviewed and having lived in Hungary for 6 years with frequent trips to Poland, most recently New Year, I knew there would be some good recipes. Love the title and cover of this book too.
