  This Blackberry & Ginger Cream Cheese Loaf is all about the berry and there’s not a hint of any of chocolate in sight ” I swear”.   You know I think I might actually prefer baking with berries over chocolate.

Blueberry Upside-Down Cake

One of the first things I ever baked in my Home Economics class in School was an Upside-Down Cake. An Upside-Down Pineapple cake to be exact, made with tinned pineapple slices and dotted with red cherries in the middle of the rings.. what a classic.  I think I must have made one every Sunday for dessert for about a year.…
