Orange-Almond-Caramel Upside-Down Cake

 I would like to start with saying that my oven is finally fixed! I don't know how I ever survived without it! With that said, this months "Cake Slice" bakers selection was this upside-down cake. I actually just finished the cake this evening and just had a warm slice! Yummm! It was really buttery and moist and had just the right amount of orange zest. This cake reminds me of the Cranberry cake we did last winter, it really looks alot like it, but way different in flavor. This recipe is an absolute keeper! For the recipe please click here.
I almost forgot to mention this recipe makes plenty of batter for a 10" round cake pan, I wouldn't try pouring  it all in the 9" pan it calls for. I also cooked my topping for about half the time required, one of our "Cake Slice" bakers had her caramel over harden in the baking process and I wanted to prevent this from happening to my cake. Thank you "Lick the Bowl Good" for the tip!
