Moist & citrusy, orange upside down cake is super fragrant and orangy.


  • Sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 3 tbls orange juice

  • 3 tbls butter

  • 2 oranges (peeled and thinly sliced)

  • Cake
  • ¼ cup unsalted soft butter

  • ½ cup sugar

  • 1 lg egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Orange zest from one orange

  • ⅛ cup orange juice

  • ½ cup yogurt

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ tsp baking powder

  • ¼ tsp baking soda


  • Preheat oven to 355° F
  • Put brown sugar and orange juice in saucepan and heat gently until it comes to a bubble. Add butter and mix well.
  • Pour the sauce into the base of a non-stick spring form pan. Put orange slices on the bottom of the pan in the sauce.
  • Put butter in a bowl. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla and mix until creamy.
  • Add in orange zest, juice and yogurt and mix well.
  • Add in flour, baking powder and baking soda and fold gently.
  • Spoon mixture into spring-form baking pan over sauce and orange slices. Spread mixture evenly.
  • Bake for 40 – 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out basically clean.
  • Remove and cool completely.
  • Slice and serve.


  • I put a piece of parchment paper with aluminum foil over the parchment paper. The first time I made this recipe, it spilled over into the bottom of the oven. The spring-form pan does leak and it will make a mess.
  • I actually got this recipe from Pinterest. I had gotten two bags of oranges and needed to do something with them before they would ruin. So I searched Pinterest.
