Cranberry Upside-Down Cake

This festive holiday cake is inspired by a recipe from Lindsey Shere, former longtime pastry chef at Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California. Fresh cranberries are abundant in winter, although frozen ones will also work fine.

Absolutely OUTSTANDING!!!!!

I make this EVERY year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I discovered it on this website about 5 years ago. It is PHENOMENAL! It truly will NOT disappoint! Perfect balance of tart and sweet! It's a pretty light dessert. Doesn't feel too heavy after a big meal. Seriously, I don't think my family would let me in the front door if I didn't have this cake in tow. Lol. I am a hard critic because I'm a pastry chef by trade. This cake is awesome and looks quite elegant!! Enough said!!
Pros: Impressive, Will Make Again

Simple & Elegant
November 4, 2013
Recently purchased WS Dessert of the Day cook book and decided to bake my way through the book! It was so simple and quick to make. My family & friends loved it and were full of compliments. The cake was moist! I will definitely make this for Thanksgiving and add a little orange zest on top of the cranberries before I put the cake batter on top. Served with whip cream or vanilla ice cream as a small bonus!
Pros: Quick, Easy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
