Raspberry Upside Down Cake

Are you ready for an amazing recipe that is super easy to make and will wow your guests with your Martha-ness?

This oh-so-yummy Raspberry Upside Down Cake recipe comes from the yet-to-be released  101 Hearty Recipes from Gooseberry Patch!
I received this book for free from my friends at the Patch and thanks to you, we made this delicious cake in no time flat!;)

You start our with a half a stick of butter... aren't these little half sticks adorable --not to mention handy?!?

Now melt it up and pour it into a  9-Inch Round Cake Pan.

Add to that 1/4 cup of sugar

Now place 1 1/2 cups of raspberries open side up down into your mixture.

Now sprinkle on 2 T of sliced almonds... Mmmm... almonds. I heart almonds!

Meanwhile in a bowl near you, mix up 1 1/2 cups Bisquick

1/2 cup of milk

2 T of oil

1/2 cup of Sugar

1/2 t each of almond extract and vanilla extract along with one beaten egg.

Now mix 'er up with a mixer for about 4 minutes and pour batter over the berries

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.

Now place your cake plate over top of the pan

And flip... but leave the cake pan in place.

After about a minute... waiting for all that ooey gooey sugar to fall right into place, remove the pan and check out the magic

Now, garnish by sprinkling on a few fresh raspberries and sliced almonds.

4 GOODe Thoughts:

That looks so good. I love your cake plate.

This sounds delish! We have wild raspberry bushes in the woods behind our house. As soon as my hubby picks some, I am making this cake.

Your Raspberry Upside Down Cake looks splendid - I am certain it tastes scrumptious!! You portray clear and beautiful photos for each step along the way. In addition, I soooo ENJOY your delightful sense of humor! Thanx for sharing your "Goodeness" with us!

Beautiful and healthy! I'm a huge fan of anything with almonds.
