Cranberry Pecan Upside Down Cake Recipe

Meet the Cook: At our house, cranberries rate as a favorite. This dessert's one that I made for the first time just last fall. It started out as a pineapple upside-down cake - I simply changed a few things around! Because it keeps well and travels well, it's great for taking to church dinners. With our son grown (we have two grandchildren), my husband and I are retired. I enjoy gardening. Our 8 acres are 12 miles from the nearest town and a mile from the nearest neighbor. -Doris Heath, Bryson City, North Carolina
