A new favorite for us! The cornmeal gives it a bit of gritty texture which I love. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if you wish.

How to Make Caramelized Pear Upside Down Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I use convection setting. Lightly spray 9" round cake pan.
  • 2For caramel sauce, combine butter, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in small saucepan. Heat to boiling, stir constantly. Remove from heat as soon as boil is reached.
  • 3Scrape caramel mixture into prepared pan. Arrange pear slices over caramel.
  • 4For cake batter, beat butter and sugar about 1 minute. Add eggs and vanilla, beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle in dry ingredients and beat about 10 seconds. Pour in milk and beat until evenly moistened, about 1 minute. Pour over pears.
  • 5Carefully lift pan and bang pan on counter twice to release air bubbles.
  • 6Bake 45 minutes. Check with knife. When done run knife around edges to loosen. Place plate over and flip onto plate.
