Vanilla and blood orange upside-down cake

Posted in : Cake, Dessert on by : Master Chef

For the last month or so, I’ve been seeing pictures of blood orange slices all over the place, and even though I don’t have a hankering for blood oranges by themselves, I can’t get over their color. And if you put them on a cake or a flaky tart crust, I’m so overwhelmed with beauty I can hardly stand it.


½ cup brown sugar
1 tbsp water
1-2 blood oranges, depending on size
1 cup sugar
¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3 eggs, room temperature (v important)
2 tsp vanilla bean paste
¼ tsp sea salt
1 cup flour
