Light, moist, lemony cake topped with a gorgeous layer of blueberries in brown sugar and butter caramel. Whether you call it a skillet cake or an upside-down cake, this dessert is sure to be a hit with friends and family. I know it was with ours. Our picky eater went back for thirds!
Upside-down cakes are a Southern staple, but they aren’t just about pineapples. Any fruit that can be cooked in a syrup is fair game, and since blueberries are in season, that’s what we went with. The results are incredible. This is a subtly-sweet dessert with enough tartness from the berries to balance perfectly. Try it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or pack it along to a barbecue or picnic. It’s all the flavors you crave in warmer weather in one package.
If you’re looking for a simple dessert that’s guaranteed to delight, this is it. Just a basic cake baked on top of berries. No special equipment is required, andy 10 inch skillet will do. It doesn’t even have to be nonstick because, and trust me on this, it isn’t going to stick! (Or, try making individual cakes in muffin tins, but you’ll want to spray those with nonstick spray first.)
