Blueberry upside down chocolate cake

         I never miss a chance to buy blueberries even when I am not sure what I am going to do with them. I had already tried  a cake, then muffins and even some delicious pancakes . This time I wanted to do something new.I asked my friend for some idea and she told me only what I had already made. Its in the  night, when I lie down , thats when I get lots of time to think without any disturbance before I drift to a sound sleep. Thats when the thought of making an upside down cake with the blueberries struck me. Yes, its going to be a upside down cake. Then chocolate cakes are my favourite. And I have always found that flavours of combining fruits and chocolate has always worked well for me. I just love it. And then I went ahead with the making of blueberry upside down chocolate cake the next morning. The cake was simply awesome and one of the best I have tasted. My son loved it too. That proves that the cake was really good because he doesn't love all the cakes I make. And then when the blueberry juices penetrates the inner layers of the cake, the cake  gets beautifully moistened with the syrupy goodness.

         Now combine the rest of the butter and brown sugar and mix well till it forms a creamy mixture. Beat the eggs and add them one by one mixing thoroughly.
         Combine the dry ingredients (APF, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder) in another bowl. Add this to the (above) bowl containing the wet ingredients gradually and mixing it well.
          Pour the batter to the prepared cake tin (on the bluberries). Even the layer with a help of a spatula.
 Bake this in a preheated oven at 180c for 35-40 minutes. The knife inserted in the center of the cake should come out clean, then the cake is done.

Ready to be eaten, can't wait anymore!!

Cool the cake well before you invert it on a plate. Cool the cake well before slicing it.
   The taste gets even better the next day when the blueberry juices infuse into the cake and imparts a beautiful syrupy moisture to the cake. Yumm!!Makes me drool even when I talk about it!!
