Ingredients
For the topping:
  • ½ c. sugar
  • 6 T. butter
  • ½ lb. jackfruit, flesh removed, seeded, and halved
For the cake:
  • 1 c. flour

  7. Pour batter over top of the jackfruit caramel in the pan.
  8. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  10. Run a butter knife around the edges and carefully invert onto a wire rack. Remove the parchment paper and cool completely.
