Mocha Upside Down Cake

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Chef Sibu

This was one of mom's recipes, but I'm not sure where it came from originally. Decadent, rich, best served hot from the oven with soft vanilla ice cream. I've seen similar posted, but they have too much cake in them. NOTE: This is a cake that makes it's own sauce underneath while it bakes.

Decent flavor but it didn't cook thoroughly and tasted like flour. There was a nice cake layer but underneath was very raw, honestly wasn't sure if that is the way it was supposed to cook minus my bad flour taste.
