This cake was definitely delicious.. I made it strictly according to the recipe. My husband who is very fond of desserts and really likes blueberries LOVED it! Although I make different desserts for him all the time he thinks I’m a marvel for making this great dessert. We were both blown away with the texture and taste of the cake itself. I’ve never had a cake with that texture.. I will for sure make it again.
Blueberry Upside Down Mini Cakes
- 2 cups frozen blueberries
- 1 lemon, zested and juiced, divided
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 pinch salt
- 1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter six 4-inch ramekins and place in a 9×13-inch baking pan.
Mix blueberries, lemon zest, and 2 tablespoons white sugar together in a small bowl.
Microwave 2 tablespoons butter in a microwave-safe bowl until melted, about 30 seconds. Stir in brown sugar. Spread equal amounts into the bottom of each ramekin. Divide the blueberry mixture evenly into the ramekins.
Beat 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup white sugar in a large bowl using an electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing after each addition. Mix in lemon juice and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder, ginger, and salt; stir until combined. Mix in milk. Spoon batter into the ramekins over the blueberry mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 35 minutes.
Let cool in the ramekins for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the cakes; invert onto a plate.
