Cranberry Upside Down Cake Recipe

  • Author: Jean Van't Hul


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup or 6 oz cranberries
  • 3/4 cup self-rising cake flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 11 1/2 Tbsp whole milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and put in a baking sheet to heat at the same time.
  2. Melt 1/4 cup butter in an 8″ cast iron frying pan (or tarte-tatin dish). Add 1/2 cup sugar, stir. Add the cranberries. Stir. Set aside while mixing the cake.
  3. Put flour, salt, cinnamon, remaining sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, and the eggs in a food processor and blitz to combine. Add enough milk to make a batter of soft, dropping consistency. (Note: I am one of the rare adults without a food processor so did this by hand and it turned out fine.)
  4. Pour batter over berries and transfer immediately to heated baking sheet in oven.
  5. Cook for 30 minutes or until cake is gold and risen.
  6. Remove from oven and place a plate on top of the pan. Turn upside down and lift the pan off (carefully!).
  7. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
