Upside Down Blackcurrant Jam Cake

I cannot oversell this cake, this upside down Blackcurrant Jam Cake has all the naughty elements required to make it a firm favourite in my house. Sugary, gooey, sticky slices of heaven, that stay on the plate for all of 5 seconds. This is not an ‘i’ll save it for later cake!’ This is an ‘I’ll start my diet tomorrow cake!’ You have been warned.

Like most of my recipes, its a no fuss bake. Simplistic but certainly not ordinary. Delicious flavours, ridiculously moorish.

Get those stretchy pants out and give it a try! Let me know how you get on in the comments or tag me on Instagram I would love to see your creations!
