Grape Fruit Upside Down Cake


One of the best desserts I’ve ever had was at the Getty Museum in Los Angles. I had it when I was 16, taking a break from touring colleges with my mom. I can tell you nothing about the art exhibits (or even about the schools I had been visiting..) but I can remember everything about the desserts we had. Good thing my parents spent so much money on the trip.


I remember spending a long time deciding between the grapefruit upside down cake and the chocolate pot de creme, probably longer in fact, than I spent deciding which college to actually attend… My mother has been talking about this upside cake ever since and I decided to make it for her birthday when I visited Denver in early June. Shelly has a very mild sweet tooth- forcing me to question if we are in fact legitimately blood related- and so this cake was perfect. Subtly sweet, and terrifically tart, it almost measured up to the Getty version itself. Find the recipe here:
