Chocolate upside down nuts caramel cake

           I have always loved this kind of cakes and have a quite a few of them in this space.This was one cake I wanted to make since a very long time.It was a bit different as I have always made fresh fruit upside down cakes. But nuts with caramel sounded so good. Also chocolate cake is a favourite at home especially my son's as he loves only chocolate cakes.
          I made this for my hubby's birthday a couple of days back and I could not take a picture of a proper slice as we had already dug into it from all sides during the celebration. But it still looks delicious ..isn't it?
