RASPBERRY & CRANBERRY “MULLED WINE” UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

So here we are, November all ready and the countdown to Christmas has begun in earnest. The shops are decked out in all their Christmas finery and playing Christmas music non-stop.  I was shocked to hear today that Santa will be arriving next week in my local shopping centre, yes for real!!  He comes earlier every year.

But best of all my favourite Christmas drink the “Black Forest Hot Chocolate” is now back on the menu at Costa.  Yes, Christmas is most definitely on its way so what better time for some early holiday baking.

I love upside down cakes, and this Raspberry & Cranberry “Mulled Wine” version is so delicious and rustic.   The basic recipe is very versatile and can be used with many different kinds of fruit and berries, but the combination of raspberry and cranberry is really a winner. The addition of mulled wine with its festive spices really gives it the Christmas “feel,” which is what I wanted here.

Quick and easy to put together this beautiful cake has all the flavour and taste of Christmas.  The buttermilk and almonds help make a really moist cake. It’s just scrumptious served warm on its own or with a dollop of whipped fresh cream.  Topped with some frosted cranberries and mint leaves it’s simply Christmas Heaven on a plate.

This recipe works equally as well with frozen fruit – its always handy to keep a few bags of frozen fruit in the freezer.
