U is for Upside-Down Cake

I've never baked one, but how bad can a spongy cake topped (bottomed?) with fruit be?? By far the most popular kind is pineapple...

But another one that sounds equally good is peach:

For a delicious breakfast-y dessert, how about an Apple Upside-Down Skillet Coffee Cake?

These fancy little Banana Upside-Down Cakes look cute and classy:

But I especially enjoyed reading this account of a Cherry Cornmeal Upside-Down Cake which seemed destined to go wrong at every turn, but still came out irresistible.

And as always, there's Baking Bites with her contributions: these muffin-sized Little Blueberry Upside-Down Cakes, this cute pan for making perfect mini pineapple upside-down cakes, and her own recipe for Banana Upside-Down Cake. She also baked something called a Tarte Tatin that is basically an apple upside-down cake made with puff pastry.

(Wow, I had no idea I'd be posting so many links about a dessert I've never really known much about! Good research.) :)
