8-Ingredient Clementine Upside-Down Cake


Clementines are a small citrus fruit, known for its light delicate flavor. This dessert combines the subtle tartness with sweet cake for a perfect flavor combination.

2 3″ tins or baking cups
1 clementine
1 ½ tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoons butter
1 egg
⅓ cup flour
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Prepare Ingredients
Preheat oven to 375F. Peel clementine and rest on a flat side. Halve horizontally. Add 1 packet butter and light brown sugar to a small pan over medium heat. Heat, stirring, until melted and combined. Divide mixture evenly between tins. Place clementines cut-side down on top.

2. Make Batter
Add remaining butter to a medium bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, or on stovetop in a small pan, until completely melted. Beat 1 egg in a small bowl. Add granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and half of egg to bowl with butter and stir to combine. Discard remaining egg. Add flour to bowl with butter and stir just until incorporated.

3. Bake Cakes
Spoon batter over clementines in tins, dividing evenly. Place tins on a baking sheet and bake until cakes are set, about 20 minutes. Remove cakes from oven and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes. Place a small plate on top of each tin, then carefully flip to invert to clementine-side up.
