TWD- Cranberry Upside- Downer

September 14, 2010– Sabrina of Superfluous chose Cranberry Upside-Downer on page 206 from Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.

I made these in mind for my good husband.  He likes the clear cut nature of an individual serve.  So out came my 4 inch spring-form tins.  I cut 4 little rounds of parchment to ensure a stress free un-molding and dug out the bag of frozen cranberries I found at the store post Christmas.

This recipe is a winner.  The butter toffee base studded with nuts rocks.  Then you get a tart hit of fruit followed by a tender slightly spicy cake.  The boys covered theirs with custard.  I had mine plain.  We skipped the jelly glaze and loved it as it was.

Now go and check out the other upside down cakes out there.  I think there will be lots of different fruit subs to mix it up.
