Very good cake and easy to make - but I had the same problem, I have had with every other upside down cake I have made - not all of it came out and I had to take it out with a knife and spread it on top of the cake. That works but isn't beautiful. What is the trick I am missing?
Sorry to hear you had problems with the cake sticking! It's important to evenly butter the pan before sugaring it, otherwise the sugar will caramelize and stick to the pan. Hope this helps - happy baking!
Yummy. So tasty.
