LOOKING for: Chocolate Upside-Down Cake

stariMarch 5, 2007

I lost my recipe for a chocolate upside-down cake; it was from one of the women's mags. This one had a chocolate topping with nuts which was put into the bundt pan before the batter was so the gooey chocolate sauce dripped down over the cake when it was inverted. Does anyone have this recipe?

The one at the link below uses a Bundt pan. I have a recipe that calls for a 8x12" pan.

Pecan Topping:
4 TBL unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup (Karo)
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
8 TBL butter, softened (1 stick)
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 sq (3 oz) unsweetened chocolate, melted
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla

For the topping: In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar & syrup. Pour into a greased 8x12" baking pan. Scatter pecans evenly on top & set aside.
For the cake: Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together the flour, baking powder & salt 7 set aside. Cream the butter; gradually add the sugar. Beat until light & fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the melted chocolate. Combine the sour cream & vanilla. Add to the batter alternately w/the dry ingredients. Pour over the topping in the pan. Bake 45 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Loosen the edges with a sharp knife. Invert onto a cake plate immediately. serve w/whipped cream of vanilla ice cream.~~Scarsdale Entertains
