Orange, yellow, brown leaves crunching under foot, mist in the air, the smell of bonfire smoke and the fizz bang of fireworks.
There’s no mistaking autumn has arrived, even if we’ve just had the mildest October in memory.
I’m gearing up for comfort baking, spiced flavours with a mug of hot chocolate under a blanket…. a furry cat on my feet would be nice but I’ll have to make do with my husband and a jumpy four year old.
Orange spice upside down cake
Today’s cake is the first of two pieces I’ve written for I Feel Orange, you can pop over to the I Feel Orange blog to see my orange spice upside down cake.
…this is a swift, uncomplicated bake that looks more sophisticated than it’s pineapple predecessor; it would be equally at home served by the slice for afternoon tea or with whipped cream and orange liqueur for pudding after a casual dinner party. Sneak a glace cherry in for that retro effect…

Love the slices of orange all caramelised and glistening. A real autumn treat.
Sarah, that has got to be the most gorgeous cake I’ve seen for a while. Our whole family loves oranges, and I can’t wait to make this recipe. Nice to see you back, is it a relief to have finally finished the book? I can’t wait to buy it when its out 🙂
This upside-down cake is definitely not bland! A dive treat.

Oooh, that looks fantastic! I’ve been meaning to make an upside down cake for the longest time – this looks like a winner with it lovely warming, spicy citrus flavours. And so pretty! Thanks.
