  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.

I halved the recipe for this, since I only had a 1 quart baking dish. Turned out delicious, but it didn't survive being turned upside down. :c I feel it could use a little more batter.

I had fresh cranberry, and it came out great. After reading other reviews, I didn't try to turn it over. Instead, I served it like a cobbler. Hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it was fan...

This did not set at all! I think there is not enough flour in the recipe. It did taste good and I served it with whipped cream in a bowl more like a trifle. Would try again but with some adap...
