Summer Berry Upside Down Cake Recipe


As soon as the local berries start showing up in the grocery stores and farmer’s markets, it’s time to start making this luscious Summer Berry Upside Down Cake. It is an impressive dessert, perfect for a summer barbecue, and it’s gorgeous, so all of the guests will be properly oohed and aahed. The secret is that the whole thing is made from convenience products – a boxed cake mix, fruit flavored gelatin, and a bag of marshmallows. The result is a moist cake with a gooey berry topping that is perfect with ice cream. Yum!
””
Any kind of fresh berries can be used in this cake, even strawberries, which aren’t usually as good when cooked – this cake is an exception.

When choosing the flavor of gelatin, remember that most fruit gelatins are artificially flavored; hence when added to fresh berries it’s a good idea to use a flavor that will compliment their flavor rather than emphasize the fake flavor from the gelatin. Use raspberry gelatin with strawberries, strawberry gelatin with raspberries, etc.
