This is similar to an upside cake. Not only does it look great but taste great. I am posting the recipe as it appeared in the Style at Home magazine, but 1 cup of raspberry juice was to much for my cake pan. I only used 2/3 cup. I also placed a sheet of foil under the cake pan to catch any raspberry juice that might spill over. I am glad I did. The recipe originated from a restaurant in Quebec City. Serve this with vanilla ice cream.

I enjoyed this recipe! Yes, you must put foil or a pan under your cake pan. I heated my berries and sugar in the microwave.I put the butter/margarine in the cake pan and heated in the oven(it was preheating)I added the berries/sugar mixture to the melted margarine, then the batter as directed. Heated only 1/2 cup of juice to pour in drizzles over batter! I could have added the butter to the batter, but this way, it doesn't seem to stick to the pan. I make cobblers this way. I added dried blueberries to the mix, after puffing them with a little heated water. Serve with vanilla ice cream and it is a masterpiece. Thanks for posting! My prep time was 15 minutes.
