Strawberry Upside Down Cake

An upside-down cake is a cake that is baked in a single pan, then turned over and served upside-down. Usually chopped fruits—such as apples, pineapples, plum, peach or cherries — and a butter and sugar topping are placed on the bottom of the pan before the batter is poured in, so that they form a decorative topping once the cake is inverted. I thought of preparing Upside-down cake with strawberry since I was preparing fro Valentine and oh my God, it was just too delicious!
