This rustic skillet dessert is our take on the popular upside-down cake. A sprinkle of fresh thyme gives the cake savory flavor.

Orange Cornmeal Cake

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For batter: In a medium bowl stir together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and 1 tsp. salt. In a large bowl beat the 3/4 cup butter with a mixer on medium to high for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar. Beat 1 minute or until fluffy, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each until combined. Alternately add the flour mixture and milk, beating on low between each addition until just combined. Stir in the orange zest and the 2 tsp. vanilla; set aside.
  2. Heat a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the 1/2 cup butter. Stir the butter around until melted and the bottom of skillet is coated. Whisk in the brown sugar, 11/2 tsp. vanilla, and 1/8 tsp. salt. Bring to boiling; boil 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened and caramelized. Stir in the thyme leaves. Remove from heat. Lay the orange slices in one even layer in the bottom of the skillet. Spoon batter over oranges; spread evenly.
  3. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until top is golden and knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in skillet 5 minutes. Invert onto a serving plate; transfer any fruit stuck in skillet to cake. Cool 20 minutes. Garnish with thyme sprigs.

Made this for some company from the February 2017 issue. We all loved it and boy did it smell good from the oven! Will make again!

Not too sweet and definitely not hard to make. The hardest part was waiting for it to bake! It was the perfect Valentines dessert tonight. Very impressive looking, minimal effort.
