Upside Down Plum Cake

JeanBob adores upside down cakes (and cupcakes, right side up cakes, any cakes really!) and he is sure that loads of his fans will enjoy this plum desert!
You can make this the night before and store in an air tight container ready to serve the following day.
For the Plums:
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
• 1/3 cup water
• 1 1/2 pounds medium plums (approx. 6), pitted and cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges
For the Cake:
• 1/2 cup crème fraîche
• 2/3 cup sugar
• 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
• 2 tablespoons whole milk
• 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp baking soda
• 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
• 2 large eggs, beaten
To Serve:
• Whipped Cream or Ice Cream
1. Firstly, we need to prepare the plums. Preheat the oven to 350°.
2. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil without stirring.
3. Carefully cook over a high heat, washing down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush, until an amber-colored caramel forms for approx. 5 to 7 minutes.
4. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the butter. Immediately pour the caramel into a 9-inch (2 inches deep) metal cake pan.
5. Arrange the plum wedges in the caramel in concentric circles.
6. Now you can move onto the cake. Take a small bowl and whisk the crème fraîche together with the milk and vanilla.
7. In another larger bowl, mix the flour with the salt, sugar, baking soda and baking powder.
8. Beat in the butter until the mixture resembles moist crumbs, this should take around 30 seconds.
9. Beat in the eggs at until incorporated.
10. Beat the batter until light and fluffy, which should take around 1 minute.
11. Next, beat in the crème fraîche mixture until smooth (approx. 30 seconds).
12. Pour the batter over the plums and gently spread over in an even layer.
13. Bake the cake in the center of the oven for 55 to 60 minutes until it is slightly springy with a golden color.
14. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 30 minutes.
15. Invert the cake onto a serving plate. 
16. Cut the cake and serve warm (or at room temperature if you prefer) with whipped cream and/or ice cream!

Happy Birthday to the scheming showman and trap aficionado Clavius! Clavius' birthday is in August which makes his zodiac sign a Leo and his birthstone the peridot.

Every Leo sees themselves as a celebrity starring in the movie that is their life. They are theatrical, dramatic, artistic, and creative. They crave the spotlight and, in Clavius' case, take it by any means necessary. 

They are natural leaders who's energy draws in people from all walks of life. He craves to be the star and step out of Rothbart's shadow. He also picks Queen Uberta's birthday to enact his evil scheme, taking the focus from her as well, putting it straight back on himself.

Leos can be divas, they like all attention on them. This can bring out their ego; their pride and jealousy doesn't like when they are put in the background or ignored.

Despite their flamboyant nature Leos are loyal and consistent and put their whole heart into everything they do. Clavius' famous traps are so legendary because of his dedication and practice. He loves that reputation even more than the trap planning itself.

Leos are ambitious and determined, but most of all they are known for their  bravery. Brave to stand up for their friendships, bravery to stand out from the crowd to be different, brave in their fashion choices, and brave in saying what they want out of life. For good or for bad.

We think this sounds just like Clavius!

 The peridot is said to calm anger and is used to bring about a fresh start. When the peridot is set in gold, like in our heart locket, it is said to protect the wearer from bad dreams. This could certainly help Clavius with some of his anger issues!

Is your birthday in August or do you just like the color green?
