fig caramel upside down cake
I adapted this recipe from one in Rustic Fruit Desserts, a book I highly recommend. It's a small book which generally is unappealing to me in a cookbook-- I don't have the greatest vision I don't need teeny tiny type slowing me down-- but it makes up for it's size with hunger inducing recipes and great pictures. The original recipe called for cherries (which I don't really care for cooked honestly) and I added some buttermilk to the cake, but otherwise pretty much left it be. If you come into some fresh figs- I highly recommend it.
