Upside Down Almond Caramel Cake.

Hello everybody.

Had a few pieces of mulberry left from a day before cake so I searched for a new easy new recipe to do with them, after looking through some I mixed and matched three, result was a super yummy easy cake. Will be on my always to do cake for sure.

Cake was upside down almond caramel with mulberries and soaked with orange juice while still hot.

As I always try to do, used less sugar and butter than original recipes ( 6 tablespoons of butter for caramel is way too much) , result was really great.

Here’s my version of this cake:

Caramel almond layer:

* 1 cup brown sugar (or white with a tablespoon of molasses)

*1 tablespoon butter.

* Mix together over low heat till sugar dissolve then pour into the cake pan.

* Roasted cup of almonds, layer them over the caramel.

Now the cake layer:

* 1 cup sugar.

* 1 tablespoon butter.

*1/2 cup vegetable oil.

* 3 eggs.

* 1 tsp vanilla.

* 1/2 cup of yogurt.

*1/2 cup of ground almonds.

* 2 cups flour.

* 2 tsp baking powder.

* Pinch of salt.

* Beat sugar and butter well.

*Add oil till mixture is creamy.

* Add eggs, vanilla and yogurt.

* Add flour and baking powder.

*Pour cake batter over almond caramel layer.

* Bake in a medium heat oven for 30-35 minutes or till cake is dry in toothpick test.

* While still warm flip the cake onto serving dish.

*Add 1/2 cup of orange juice to remaining caramel stuck in the pan and mix well over low heat to get a syrup.

*Drizzle it over cake .

One of the best cakes I’ve ever done, it even doesn’t need any decorations and awesome with coffee or tea.

How’s the new year treating you so far?

1/3 cup sugar.

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla.

21/2 tablespoons vegetable oil.

My Latest Beautiful Cake.


Hello everybody.

Baking and decorating a new cake with specific qualifications is becoming a big challenge, full of anticipations and excitement to reach the final look. It’s a feeling I guess similar to painting art or designing a dress , you just can’t wait to finish .


This weekend’s cake was for a graduation party, client wanted it flowery, pink with some leaves and topped with macaroons. though the idea was to use baby pineapple instead of the cactus but unfortunately I couldn’t find.


Cactus was the alternative and It was amazing, gave the cake a beautiful touch.

Cake was lemon velvet filled with cream cheese frosting, strawberries, pineapple and coconut .


thank God client was satisfied and super happy .
