Bake Blueberry Desserts Upside Down For A Juicy Surprise
The biggest problem with baking with blueberries is that they naturally sink in batters, but putting them in upside-down desserts makes baking with berries surprisingly simple.
Intentionally putting blueberries at the bottom of the pan means you won't have to worry about tossing them with flour or constantly stirring the mixture.
The sugar in dessert recipes helps macerate the blueberries, making them soft and juicy. Baking concentrates those juices, creating a stronger flavor than fresh berries.
Blueberries act a bit like a skillet jam. They caramelize as water in the batter evaporates, resulting in a gooey, flavorful, compote-like layer at the bottom of the dessert.
Try pairing blueberry upside-down desserts with honey and lemon for a decadent sweet and tart flavor profile so you can wow guests with a blue-tifully surprising dessert.
