The original recipe calls for making the cake from scratch, but to save time my wife yesterday used a Betty Crocker Lemon cake mix. The Cranberrry Upside Down Cake was a hit at our Bible Study Class Christmas party.

Krista we have never made it in a Bundpan, but that doesn't mean that you can not do it.
