    I also used plums with this cake and I really liked how the fruit with cake mix turned out. I used a lil less baking soda then called for and it was still too much. I would scale it down right to 1tsp. Other than that it was yummy and baked in less than 40 mins.

    This is a great basic upside down cake. My favorite is pineapple so that's what I made. It was so good. In the cake dough, I used only 1/2 cup sugar. Other than that, I followed the recipe and got a beautiful and delicious cake. Thanks Pink :) Made for Photo tag

    This was super good,as DD said.She helped me make it(she spends a lot more time in the kitchen since I bought an apron for her).We used plums and I could see us making this many times.Sour cherrie would be great. I liked it that it was moist and not spongy like other upside down cakes.I wasn't sure which sugar went in the bottom of the pan,since it didn't specify,but I guess it's the brown one.In the batter,I cut down the amount to half cup and it worked fine,even though the plums were a little tart.Thanks for sharing.
