Blackberry Buttermilk Upside-Down Cake


  • 6 ounces blackberries
  • 1 ½ cups Bisquick +2 tablespoons
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 4 butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • Whipped cream for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously spray a 9-inch cake pan with non-stick cooking spray, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of Bisquick into the cake pan and shake it around until coated. Sprinkle the blackberries across the bottom of the cake pan. In a large bowl, stir together Bisquick, egg, sugar, butter, vanilla, and buttermilk until a lumpy batter forms. Spoon the batter into the prepared cake pan, over the top of the blackberries. Bake in preheated oven for 14-17 minutes, or until the cake springs back to the touch.
  2. Once cool, run a knife along the edge of the cake pan and invert the cake onto a plate. Serve heaping slices of cake with whipping cream or ice cream.
