It really is an old fashioned favourite comfort food dessert at our house and one that I have been making for many years. We’ve served it at many a dinners with guests over the years. 

The kids especially love it when served with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream.

So  easy to make with common pantry ingredients. It’s also an ideal Autumn dessert when the apple and blueberry harvests are happening at the same time.

Frozen blueberries are also perfectly fine to use in this recipe.

You can’t get a better seasonal dessert than that. However, it’s just as good using frozen berries.

Serve warm with a scoop of good vanilla bean ice cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream.

Blueberry Apple Upside Down Cake. Old fashioned baking at its best.

Firmer apples like Red delicious work well in this recipe. I like how the former apples hold their shape and don’t get too mushy. Plenty of other kinds of apples will do equally well.

I like Red Delicious Apples for this recipe but you can use any kind you like.
