Reviews for Blueberry Upside-Down Skillet Cake
"Quick, easy and very tastey. I added more blueberries to the pan.Will definately make it again."
"This cake tested done, and it looked done; however, it had the texture of a cake not quite done. I followed the recipe with the exception of cutting the brown sugar in half. It was okay, but I will not make it again."
"Delicious! My kids and husband loved it, even the blueberry hater. I cut the amount of butter and sugar in the topping by half and it was perfect."
"This sounds tasty!"
"Delicious! Absolutely Delicious! I did not have orange juice, so I made a little mixture of lemon juice, water, and sugar. I also cut the butter in the batter to 1/4 cup, and added 1/3 cup of sour cream to make sure it stayed nice and moist. I had to walk away from this dessert. Too Good!"
