Cherry Upside-Down Cake


I love this tasty Cherry Upside-Down Cake because it gives me a reason to buy cherries from my local farmer’s market! If I plan to make this upside-down cherry cake, I always buy extra cherries so that I have some to snack on while I cook! I advise you to do this too! 

As well as tasting really delicious, this cherry upside-down cake recipe is very easy to make! Start by softening the cherries in a saucepan with caramelized sugar and red wine. Make a batter by combining flour, butter, sugar, baking powder, eggs, salt and milk. Place the cherries in the bottom of a baking pan and top with the cake batter. Bake in the oven until golden brown on top. Leave to cool slightly before turning the cake out onto your favorite serving plate.

To make Cherry Upside-Down Cake, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Cherry Upside-Down Cake


Heat oven


Preheat the oven to 350 ºF. Grease a springform pan with butter.


Prepare cherry mixture


Rinse 300 grams of cherries. Drain them and remove the pits. Caramelize 50 grams of sugar in a small saucepan. Add the rinsed cherries to the caramel and deglaze the saucepan with 100 milliliters of red wine. Simmer over medium heat for 5-7 minutes.


Make cake batter


Place 400 grams of pastry flour, 200 grams of softened butter, 150 grams of sugar, 1 packet of baking powder, 5 eggs, 1 teaspoon of salt and 200 milliliters of milk in a mixing bowl. Mix with an electric handheld mixer until you have a smooth batter.


Place fruit and batter in the baking pan


Place the softened cherries at the bottom of the baking pan and spread out evenly. Pour the batter over the cherries and smooth using the back of a spoon or a frosting spatula.




Bake in the oven for about 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.


Cool and remove from the baking pan


Leave the cake to cool in the pan for a few minutes before turning out onto a cake plate.



Serve slices of this cake with coffee or tea on the side.

I personally think the cake it way too sweet even for a cake, best way to change that for next time is to replace cane white sugar with brown and add a bit of lemon zest.

Can this be made with blueberries instead of cherries?

That's a LOT of sugar but it's good for sweettoothed people.

Devyn Fedigan

This was super good!! Loved this dessert a lot more than the bowl upside down cake, this has so much more flavor.

Anayah Fakes

Needed a bit more butter like another half and it was good after that also recommend to smear the thing youre baking it in with some butter too so the cake doesn't stick to it.

Spencer Borrmann

Kinda hard to make mine was not as thick as the pictures and was actually slightly small not exactly sure why that is cause i did follow the instructions.

Anneliese Feigelson

Why is there dry wine in this i don't get it..?

Tried making some vanilla frosting for this and ended up just using some powdered sugar, lemon and milk for the glaze lmao.
