Sour Cherry & Almond Upside-Down Cake From The Artful Baker

October 13th, 2017  | Category: Cakes, Cookbook

In celebration of my book’s upcoming release (out on Tuesday!), I’d like to share the video I’ve created for my favorite recipe in the book: Sour Cherry & Almond Upside-Down Cake.

Considering that there is a chocolate cake using over a pound of chocolate (page 144), passion fruit caramels that make me weak in the knees (page 274), and several ice creams that I can’t live without, “my favorite recipe in the book” is a big statement. I’m not sure whether it’s the sticky-sweet sour cherries against that buttery, almond-y crumb, or the fact that the fruit layer gets sweeter and stickier each time I apply the sour cherry glaze to refresh it, but this cake is what I crave most.

Here’s what the queen of baking, Rose Levy Beranbaum, said about the cake in her review: “The almond cake is a high achievement in perfection of texture–surprising for a layer cake so low in wheat flour.”

I hope you have a stash of sour cherries in your freezer!
