Kiwi & Clementine Upside Down Cake

Its peak season of both Kiwi and clementine here, both these fruits are my favourite though i cant eat kiwi raw to enjoy their goodness. However i dont miss eating kiwis, i usually bake or dish out apple sauce with kiwi, else a simple kiwi compote or jam to please my tastebuds. Obviously am posting one of those incredible kiwi based cake today which i baked recently with clementines. I have a reason for it, yes this week's blogging marathon's theme is going to be Seasonal produce. Since its going to be Winter very soon, we are trying to keep ourselves fit to overcome the upcoming nasty winter by enjoying these fruits. Kiwi and clementines, both these fruits are loaded with loads of vitamins especially vitamin C. Trust me we are literally overloaded with these fruits but still if you check my fruit baskets, you can still able to see some kiwis and clementines sitting silently.
