Blackberry-Almond Upside Down Cake #CakeSliceBakers

 For July, I decided to bake the Blackberry-Almond Upside Down Cake.  This recipe has you coat your blackberries lightly in sugar, place in a single row on the bottom of your cake pan, and then top with a thick almond cake batter.

The cake was moist and tasty, and it was still moist the next day when we finished it up for breakfast.  I had refrigerated the cake because it's been so hot and humid lately I was worried the fruit might start to get moldy if I left it on the counter.

My only "complaint" is that I wish there were more blackberries scattered throughout the cake - though of course then it would not be an upside down cake.  Maybe serving it with some blackberry jam would get the taste I was seeking. 

I could easily see using this same recipe with other berries or even diced peaches.

Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is Little Everyday Cakes by Candace Floyd. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!

Follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the thumbnail pictures below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.

It is a new year and a new book - Little Everyday Cakes - and our choices for July 2021 were ~

  1. I need to figure out if there's a reason to coat the berries with sugar. I skipped that part to cut back on a wee little bit of sugar. But, I agree with you, more berries would have been nice. I did put fresh berries on top for more "berriness."

  2. OOOOhhhh, or you could make a blackberry compote to dollop on top. Wouldn't that be lovely?

  3. There's never too many blacberries. This cake is looks gorgeous.

  4. This cake with peaches would really be a treat!
