Blueberry Upside-Down Cake

Today I made another one of Ann's (Thibeault's Table) recipes.  Her never-fail recipes didn't disappoint once again.  This easy blueberry creation is a little different from most coffeecakes in that it bakes 'upside-down'.  When you turn it right-side up, those beautiful blueberry juices run down the sides of this delicious cake.  A little whipped cream on the side, and it's the perfect dessert, tea treat, or midnight snack!  Thanks again, Ann!

Blueberry Upside-Down Cake

1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
3/4 cup milk

In 9-inch square cake pan, combine melted butter and brown sugar;spread evenly on bottom. (Brush a little of the melted butter on the sides of the cake pan before adding the sugar.)  Spread blueberries evenly over top. Sprinkle with lemon juice.

Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. Sift or mix together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon if using. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk to creamed mixture. Spread batter evenly over blueberry layer. Bake in 350°F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes in pan, then turn out on to large flat plate.

Oh my, what a lovely cake plate, just perfect for your blueberry upside down cake. I happen to have blueberries in the freezer so I'm ready to bake. Love all that luscious fruit on what becomes the top of the cake.

I just made this cake and was wondering how deep your cake is. I used a 9 inch square pan and the cake is only about a little over an inch high. I followed recipe with baking powder etc. as written. It's a fabulous cake no matter but seems a little flat. Your picture looks at least 2-3 inches high.

Lori (All That Splatters) said...

Robinsing, yes my cake was about 2-1/2 inches tall. I'm wondering if maybe your baking powder needs replacing. Not sure! Tall or flat, it is a wonderful cake, isn't it?!

Thanks for visiting All That Splatters.
