The quintessential fall berry falls head over heels in this sweet-tart spin on an upside down cake. Cranberries, butter and brown sugar go on the bottom of your cake pan before the batter, but once the cake’s turned out, they form a caramelly top that pops with cranberry tartness. Stock up on cranberries while they’re in season—this cake can be made year-round with frozen berries. MORE+ LESS-
