Maple Syrup Upside-Down Cake




Ingredients

  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, softened
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped topping as accompaniment (optional)

Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C)
  2. Measure butter, sugar, and egg into a bowl, and beat with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until creamy.
  3. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon (or nutmeg) together. Add the dry ingredients and the milk, a little at a time and alternating between the two, to the creamed butter mixture. Stir until well blended.
  4. Measure syrup into a small saucepan. Heat the syrup until it boils, and pour into a generously buttered 8-inch square baking pan. If using chopped walnuts, add them to the hot syrup.
  5. Scoop up the dough in four large balls and drop them into the hot maple syrup. Using two forks, stretch dough the edges of the balls until the dough forms one large mass. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 30 minutes.
  6. Serve warm, with ice cream or whipping cream (if desired).
Serves 16.
