Rhubarb Upside-Down Yogurt Cake

It might just be the ultimate day for a summer cake. We created this one for our youtube channel and never intended to post it here, but it was just too pretty not to.

The cake is gluten free and the addition of yogurt makes its consistency somewhat similar to a cheesecake. All in all it’s a gorgeous cake for summer gatherings.

I spent my weekends rolling ice cream and selling pies, lollies and newspapers in my local dairy (aka deli/corner store for those of you who don't understand kiwi :-)) I saved every penny I earned and in my second-to-last year of high school I'd saved enough cash to buy a second hand Minolta that I'd had my eye on for some time. I felt so grown up. It had an actual lens, it was big and proper looking and whats more, it took amazing photos. I quickly became the member of our family who was always guaranteed to be taking photos of everyone at gatherings and also the one who spent a huge proportion of her meager wages on film and developing.

It was a bit of a hybrid between a diner and an IHOP that specialized in (you guessed it) pie, but you could also get typical diner / breakfast-y fare too, all day every day. It was my FAVORITE place on earth. Mostly because when you walked in there were glass cases filled with every type of pie you could imagine, my heaven. Apple, cherry, key lime, blueberry, lemon meringue ...... and so after we ate our breakfast, I was allowed to order whatever piece of pie I wanted. Rhubarb meringue tarts w/ lemon-hazelnut crust (gluten + dairy free) — dolly and oatmeal.

I would probably bore you if i recounted the details of how many different incarnations this dessert had before its current state; but you should know that there were 2 batches of rhubarb curd (which is now my favorite thing to spoon into my mouth - move over peanut butter!)
