TWD: Nectarine Upside-Down Chiffon Cake


I was hesitant to try out nectarine upside-down chiffon cake because the the recipe is almost 3 pages long (I have short attention span!) and it also seems that some of the TWD-ers encountered some problems when making the cake. But after reading through the recipe twice, it looks interesting enough for me to peel myself off the sofa and get ready to bake. I made 1/3 batch using a 6-inch cake pan. The pan is lined with parchment paper and so I did not have any problem when I flipped the cake over. The chiffon cake is light and airy and the nutty streusel definitely adds an interesting texture to the cake.

If you want to give the recipe a try, hop over to Marlise's and Susan's blogs!

A perfect solution to this HUGE under-done cake by most standards. I LOVE the 6" cake idea. I just might try it again! You cake looks lovely and I enjoyed your post. Blessings, Catherine http://praycookblog.com/2012/09/twd-bwj-nectarine-upside-down-chiffon-cake/

I think I prefer small cake tin to the bigger ones. There is only Wild Boar and myself :) and secondly the cake looks petite in small size :p Your chiffon cake is interesting..upside down chiffon cake...mmmm I may want to try this out when I am not stuck to the sofa. I smile when I read " peel myself off the sofa " that is exactly how I feels when I am hooked on dramas and yet have to bake a cake for someone ! :) Well done! your cake looks lovely ! I am always inspire by your bakes :)

Your 6" cake helped avoid the problems a lot of the bakers had. I took some to two neighbors so we didn't consume a ridiculous number of cake calories!

This looks great. Thanks for doing the math, I happen to have a 6-inch cake pan so I can't wait to try it. We've had a lot of cakes and pies around lately, so a smaller one is just perfect.

I'd like to give the 6 inch cake baking a try, how long did you bake it for? It looks wonderful.

Your cake looks perfect! It is good to know that this recipe could be scaled down with such great results.

And I didn't make this one because I didn't want to have a giant cake for my family of 4 to eat. You showed me up on this! It looks so yummy I might have to make this on the make up day.
