this is my recipe and I'm not sure why they say to use frozen cranberries - I use fresh...
I made it this morning, with some changes, and everyone loved it including my 2 young boys. I didn't have frozen cranberries, so I used 1 cup craisins (mixed half in the batter, half for the topping)--I would NOT use 3 cups--too much. No pecans. Substituted brown sugar for the first cup of white sugar to mix with the craisins for the topping. I also didn't make it "upside down" so I added half the batter, then a layer of topping, then layered the rest of the batter and topping.
I made this for New Years exactly as the recipe stated and it came out delicious! When people start changing things in a recipe, it's no longer the recipe stated...it then becomes their own recipe. Make it according to directions and you won't have any problems. It was yummy and I will definitely make it again.
Love it! We add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter.
I took this to my church Christmas party and the pastor kept telling people not to eat it so he could take it home. I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon to cake batter. I piped whipped cream in a lattice pattern on top as one edge stuck in the dish when I flipped it. Hid the crack very well.
I halved the recipe for this, since I only had a 1 quart baking dish. Turned out delicious, but it didn't survive being turned upside down. :c I feel it could use a little more batter.
I had fresh cranberry, and it came out great. After reading other reviews, I didn't try to turn it over. Instead, I served it like a cobbler. Hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it was fantastic. So much for my diet.
This did not set at all! I think there is not enough flour in the recipe. It did taste good and I served it with whipped cream in a bowl more like a trifle. Would try again but with some adaptations.
