UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE

one of our all time favorite restaurants in town is Sqirl. everyone on our team loves it and my husband and i frequently stop in for breakfast (go before 8am to beat the rush!). the owner and chef jessica koslow just released a cookbook “everything i want to eat” and it’s excellent. there are so many simple dishes and everything has a little back story of how it came to be part of the restaurant. it’s a fun read and i recommend purchasing it for your cookbook collection. -joanie

we made her recipe for upside-down cake at the office last week and it was a hit. i will say that we made it using blood oranges and i think it might be better paired with pear or plum. the oranges were a bit too tangy for my taste. but, the cake turned out wonderfully, soft and moist and beautiful!
