Cherry-Cornmeal Upside-Down Cake

As much as I love to eat fresh fruit, baking with it is near to my heart – and stomach. Crisps, cobblers, pies, muffins, scones – the list could go on, but this time I decided on cake. I wanted something that would showcase the cherries and add to their sweetness. This Cherry-Cornmeal Upside-Down Cake is the perfect answer. The cherries are sautéed with brown sugar, butter and a little bit of balsamic vinegar and then a lovely, light cornmeal batter made with Hodgson Mill Yellow Cornmeal is layered on top and baked until it turns into a golden brown cake. Then the whole thing is turned upside-down and the oooh’s and ahhh’s begin. The cherries glisten on top of the cake like rubies and beg to be picked off and eaten. The deep yellow from the stone ground cornmeal peeks out around the edges of the cake and promises to deliver a tasty bite along with the cherries on top. Read More »

Plum Orange Anise Breakfast Cake with Multigrain Cereal

I think this one is the perfect level of sweetness for morning – tart, baked plums nestle into the soft fragrant cake; almost like a bread pudding. The Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and Multi Grain Cereal give it a pleasant granola-like texture, but without the crunch, if that makes sense. Every bite is just interesting. Read More »
