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.


  • 1 Lemon Cake mix (follow directions)
  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 cups light-brown sugar
  • 2 pounds cranberries
  • Butter flavored cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Spray bottom of 2 9 x 9 inch cake pans with cooking spray.
  • In a medium pan over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar and pour the mixture into the bottom of the cake pans.
  • Place the cranberries in the cake pans on top of the butter and sugar mixture.
  • Spread the batter over the fruit in the cake pans and bake according to directions or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes come out clean.
  • Remove the cakes from the oven and run a knife around the edges.
  • Let sit for 15 minutes.
  • Invert the cakes onto serving platters and let it
  • sit another 5 minutes, then remove the pans.
