Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously grease a 2 quart rectangular baking dish.
  2. Spread the cranberries evenly over the bottom of the baking dish, and sprinkle the pecans over the cranberries. Spoon 1 cup of sugar over the cranberries and pecans.
  3. Place the eggs into the work bowl of an electric mixer, and beat on high speed about 1 minute, until the eggs are foamy. Beat in 1 cup of sugar, the flour, melted butter, and milk, and beat on Low until just mixed. The batter will be thick. Spread the batter evenly over the cranberry-pecan mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cake is lightly brown and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Carefully invert the cake onto a serving plate, so the cranberry-pecan layer is on top. Let cool 30 minutes before serving.

this is my recipe and I'm not sure why they say to use frozen cranberries - I use fresh...

I made this for New Years exactly as the recipe stated and it came out delicious! When people start changing things in a recipe, it's no longer the recipe stated...it then becomes their own recipe. Make it according to directions and you won't have any problems. It was yummy and I will definitely make it again.

I made it this morning, with some changes, and everyone loved it including my 2 young boys. I didn't have frozen cranberries, so I used 1 cup craisins (mixed half in the batter, half for the topping)--I would NOT use 3 cups--too much. No pecans. Substituted brown sugar for the first cup of white sugar to mix with the craisins for the topping. I also didn't make it "upside down" so I added half the batter, then a layer of topping, then layered the rest of the batter and topping.
