Next-Level Plum Upside-Down Cake
Everyone will flip for this stunning dessert crowned with shingled plum slices. The addition of buttermilk to the batter keeps the cake underneath wonderfully moist. This recipe comes from Martha Stewart's Cake Perfection: 100+ Recipes for the Sweet Classic, From Simple to Stunning (Clarkson Potter).
If you don't have a 10-inch cast iron skillet, use a 9-by-2-inch round cake pan. When forming concentric circles of plum slices in the pan, shingle them as closely as possible—they'll shrink while they bake.
