Ingredients

Topping:
1 14 oz. can Ocean Spray® Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

Cake:
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Whisk together flour, ground ginger, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg in a medium bowl until well-blended.

On low speed, alternately beat in flour and sour cream in 3 parts, beginning and ending with flour, being careful not to over beat. Spoon batter over topping and gently spread to cover.

cranberry-ginger upside down cake

Sue from Dallas, TX

This is a wonderful recipe. The suggestion of using blueberries and orange zest was a great idea. I have two suggestions that will give you a lighter cake with out altering the flavor. One is to sift the flour before measuring, then sift the flour again with the dry ingrediants. The next thing is to use yogurt instead of sour cream.

mmm good

I made this recipe yesterday and added blueberries to the mixture along with the cranberries, I also added a little orange zest. My family loved this cake and asking me to make another bigger one. I would like to compliment on your work of art [Cranberry-Ginger upside down cake].
