Berry Cake

The recipe is a bit of a single layer right-side up upside-down cake, made in a pie plate. I think the concept originally came from Martha Stewart.


  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup sugar plus more for top
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 12 oz mixed berries

Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Butter a 10-inch pie plate.

Mix flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside.

Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in egg, milk, and vanilla.

Slowly add flour mixture and mix just until blended.

Place in buttered pie plate. Arrange berries on top of batter, pressing into batter. Sprinkle top with 2 tablespoons sugar.

Bake cake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F/160°C and bake until cake is golden brown and firm to the touch, about 1 hour.

Cool and enjoy!
