Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Anita Hoffman


Make sure to use black plums, as they will turn pink when they bake and will look beautiful. The plums and blueberries can be replaced with peaches. This is a very pretty cake. You can also eliminate the blueberries and have a great plum cake. This cake is not only beautiful, it is also delicious.
