Chocolate Upside-Down Cake

This was a favourite cake at Chocolate Tasting Day at work several times. To really enjoy this cake, accompany with a big glass of cold milk!


  • 3/4 cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 1/4 cups strong brewed coffee, boiling


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)

  2. Cream together 3/4 cup sugar and butter. Add the milk and vanilla and mix.

  3. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, and 3 tablespoons cocoa, and add to the mixture.

  4. Spread into a greased 9 x 9 inch pan. The batter will be thick.

  5. Combine 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 cup cocoa. Sprinkle this over the batter.

  6. Finally, pour 1 1/4 cups boiling double strength coffee or water evenly over all.

  7. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 30 minutes.

This is a pretty easy cake recipe, as it uses box mixes.

This is something I like making up especially during hot weather.

What you need:
- Frozen Fruit of your choice (I love using blueberries, mainly because they're easy to scoop up with a spoon.)
- Milk/cream of your choice (I lean towards my normal drinking milk or my coffee cream if I'm trying to use it up before it goes bad, but any milk or milk substitute you drink that'll freeze will work.)
- Sugar (This is totally optional. If you find your chosen berries sweet enough to eat plain, you can leave off the sugar; if you have a sweet tooth, sugar can be nice.)

Pour some of the frozen berries into a bowl, and then pour on enough milk to cover most of them. Think of it like when you add milk to cereal. Add sugar to taste and let it sit for a couple of seconds. The frozen berries will freeze the most milk into ice-milk and voila! Berries and ice cream. :D

Handy for when you either need to use up the milk/cream fast or you can't get down to the store to buy a carton of actual ice cream.

My Grandma's traditional never-fail self-saucing chocolate pudding. It's the recipe that has never failed anyone in our family and gets brought out at every birthday unless we've made Grandma's chocolate/orange/lemon cake instead. I made it on Tuesday night for my cousin's birthday and thought I should share it. It takes five-ten minutes to throw together before you sit down to eat and it's ready at the end of the meal.
