I have to admit that this recipe had some scary moments for me, the challenged baker! Do not doubt -- This recipe proves itself in the result. Fantastic! Thanks, PaulaG! Make for ZWT9, tea, Gourmet Goddesses.
Berrylicious! Thought this sounded good and then I saw Maryland Jim's photo and was sold on having to try. The blueberries are complemented nicely by the ginger and molasses. I thought I had more molasses than I did so ended up using only about 1/3 of a cup or a smidgen more but not the full half cup. Issue two was I grew up making upside down cakes in cast iron pans and I had a 6" and 10" fearing boil over ended up using the 10" which reduced my baking time to 35 minutes. Thanks for the post.
We really liked this cake. Easy to make. Even my oldest son, who normally doesn't like cake, enjoyed it. Made for ZWT9 and "The Apron String Travelers.
