Georgia Pecan Upside Down Cake: My favorite cake! heavenly good and super irresistible!
This Pecan Upside Down Cake is incredibly delightful! It’s chock-full of pecans and coconut. I will be forever obsessed with the sticky-crunchy-sweetness of this cake from the pecan-coconut combination. This cake is creamy, yet light, and a little chewy with a hint of crunch.
I love Upside-down cakes because they are much easier than making a regular layered cake. Frosting the cake is not required, and there are no layers to stack. Simply sprinkle the topping in the bottom of the pan, then pour the batter on top. The topping magically melts together as the cake bakes. Invert the cake and witness the deliciousness ooze down into and over the cake. You will want to dig straight into the crunchy, candied pecans that rise on top.

Next, add the baking powder and salt. Beat again on low speed until combined. Add half of the flour, then milk and the rest of the flour, mixing every after each addition.
Over the pecan mixture in the prepared pan, pour the batter. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Around the sides of the pan, run a knife to loosen the cake. Let the cake cool for 5 minutes in the pan before inverting it onto a platter. Before serving, cool the cake for another 15 minutes.
