Caramel-Date Upside-Down Buttermilk Cake

Posted by - Jess
I stumbled across this recipe: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2009/03/caramel_date_upside_down_cake and I love dates so I had to try it.
The recipe calls for making the caramel right in the pan it is going to bake in which was interesting to do. Butter and sugar caramelized is so good!

After the caramel is all ready the sliced dates get arranged in the pan.


Ready to go into the oven.

Fresh out of the oven!
I think the cake needed a little more caramel on the top but other than that I am happy with how it came out.

A fun choice with a lot of possibilities! Thank you for posting how to make buttermilk as it was very useful.

that looks fantastic. a friend of mine gave me this huge container of fresh dates-I was so afraid they might go to waste! Now I know where to use them!

Do you know I've never eaten dates? I have no idea what they taste like! The cake looks really good, though!

Thanks so much everyone!

@Colleen, I bet the cake will taste so much better with fresh dates!

@Veronica, you're not the first person I've met who has never tasted a date. They are worth a try, so yummy!!

This really looks incredible. I found your blog by chance and had intended a quick pop in to say hello. I was, instead, lured by your earlier posts and stayed much longer than I planned. I really like your recipes and the very pleasant tone of your blog. I'll be back as often as I can. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
