Blood orange yogurt and almond upside down cake

Blood_orange_upsidedown_cake-4This slightly moist cake with the powerful orange zest and the creaminess of yogurt is simply ideal. And you will have to admit that with such a simple trick as putting a few slices of orange so they are upside down is not a lovely cake for any breakfast or snack? Do it know that we have blood oranges in full season, in 15 minutes you will have it ready and will not regret it!

Blood_orange_upsidedown_cake-3And we do not stop the rhythm, I will not let you hang again! This time, lowering the level a bit with a simple recipe suitable for all levels. Common ingredients, seasonal, and also very easy to make. For sure you already know the famous upside down cakes, our mothers already baked them at the time, and my mother did it in a pot because at home we did not have an oven!


Well you can imagine now how simple is this recipe, the usual classic to which I have given a different touch by adding the almonds flour and using blood oranges which is a fruit that I find really pretty.

It is the first recipe for the blog that I have bake in my new oven. A super fancy convection oven that bakes cakes superbly! And it’s also the first photo session I shoot in my new photo studio. It is still under construction, in fact these photos I made with 4 woods on top of a carton box from my moving XD. This is called improvisation!

Blood_orange_upsidedown_cake-19I still have a lot to arrange in the photo studio. I’m still thinking about how to do it so I can have a structure where I can easily change the backgrounds I use for photo shoots, or if I can get a fixed table or keep changing the woods like I do now. Someone who wants to share with me some ideas or experiences on the same subject? Help me please, I’m lost!!


Blood_orange_upsidedown_cake-26Well, I leave you with the recipe, I hope you really try it, and if you do send me a picture because you know I love to see them!

    Have you thought about using a green screen in your photo studio, if you want to easily change the background? Also, you need a rotating table, and you have to get rid of those cardboard boxes, because they are so versatile that you might find them everywhere in your house if you don’t fight them constantly.

      Using a green screen is a great idea, I think I need to get one 🙂
      Well, I don’t see exactly why does the table has to be rotating, you will have to explain me better… But the cardboard boxes are doing pretty well the job XD But I have to say that now I only have 3 of them, you will be proud of me!!
