Mondays Cake and a touch of Lou Reed

Yesterdays cake. An upside down cake, which is one of my favourites. I love how sticky the base gets. It was bloody delicious even if I do say so. It's all in the blend of flours I think: a mixture of ground almonds, wholemeal flour and self raising flour. These gave a gorgeous moisture, but a lightness too, and the wholemeal flour added a comforting sweetness. I used some lurking plums and apricots and the colours looked glorious. Add to this some freshly grated ginger and some mixed spice,  piece of piss! Needless to say there isn't much left.

Whilst baking this beauty I listened to Lou Reed's Transformer... Check out this one. The tuba is excellent for beating!
