Jaffa Upside-Down Cake

Jaffa Upside-Down Cake

I’d been wanting to make an upside-down cake since seeing the Pineapple Upside -Down Cake in the Cast Iron Boys Cookbook. I couldn’t cook it as I am allergic to pineapple and have cooked a few other Jaffa desserts so I came up with a Jaffa Upside-Down Cake. Some of the measurements are approximated so feel free to adjust if need be.
