Upside-Down Cake


  1. Friendship Starter: Combine ingredients and place in a glass jar with a loose cover. Stir several times the first day, then stir once a day. Do not refrigerate.
  2. At the end of two weeks, the starter has fermented enough to make sauce.
  3. Sauce can be spooned over angel food or pound cake, ice cream, cheese cake, pancakes, ham slices or cottage cheese.
  4. Friendship Sauce: Combine all ingredients in a glass jar with a loose cover; stir well. Set in a fairly warm place. Continue to stir once a day. Sauce can be served after one week.
  5. Fruit and sugar can be repeated every 2 weeks.
  6. Share 1 cup portions with a friend along with directions for replenishing the fruit.
  7. Cake: Melt butter in 8-inch square pan. Add brown sugar, fruit sauce and nuts; mix well. Set aside.
  8. In medium mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour batter over fruit-sugar-butter mixture in pan.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; loosen edges with knife and invert onto serving plate.
  10. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.
