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.
approx. 30mins 4.5-quart camp oven
4.5-quart camp oven

Mix the white sugar and butter together and then add the vanilla essence and eggs.
Add the flour, orange juice and rind, chocolate chips and cocoa powder and stir.
Place the orange slices on the bottom of the greased camp oven and sprinkle the brown sugar over the slices. Spread the cake mixture over the top of the orange slices and sugar. Cook for approx. 30 minutes
