"There’s something nostalgic and heartwarming about an upside-down cake. A custard-yellow sponge sitting atop—or rather underneath—syrupy pineapple rings. And occasionally, if you’re lucky, a couple of candied cherries. It’s reminiscent of simpler times, of the seventies, and our grandmas. Our modern version, with saffron and sliced pears, is better suited to a dinner party than sitting around the kitchen table but contains all the same comforting nostalgia that we often crave."
