this recipe is very good. i did make a few chsnges. i didn't have any blackberries so i used blueberries. i did not use the honey. it was very sweet without it so i am glad i didn't use it. with that being said the cake was very soft and flavorful. the presentation was beautiful. i would probably make a creme fraiche to go with this to offset some of the sweetness.

This cake was easy, moist, and simply delicious! The berries were just what is needed to make this one exceptional! The simplicity is what first drew me, but the taste will keep me. I used cake flour instead of regular, which made the cake portion more delicate and just as delectable as the topping! Perfect for a fall get-together! Great with whipped topping!

5 stars on presentation. This turned out beautiful, and was pretty easy to make!! However, it was a little too sweet and plain for my liking. It may have been better served warm, with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or ice cream. I may "fiddle" with it and try again. :)

Excellent cake...I did add a few more berries just because I had them. Can use for brunch or just dessert.

This cake was delicious! My roommate and I both loved it, and it was even better after sitting in the fridge over night. My only change would be to use a little less honey, since it was slightly sweet for my taste- still excellent, though.

Amazing! Will definitely make again!! I cut back on the granulated sugar as well as the butter and it still turned out fabulous! I also used granny smith apples to balance out the sweetness. Would be great to take somewhere or just to have with coffee in the morning. I started giving it to people so I wouldn't eat the whole thing!

This cake looks as if it would be difficult to make, but is quite easy to prepare. I add several more blackberries than the recipe calls for, particularly if the blackberries I am using are very large. It a great dessert for home or impressive at the office.

I didn't think I would like this as much as I did. It was elegant yet simple! The honey really dominated the taste. It could have been too much EXCEPT for the honey I used. Secret: Use lavender honey! It's to die for, if expensive. Another honey to try might be acacia. These honeys are really light, not cloying and WONDERFUL. Really brought out the apple and berries.

We were in a BBQ cook off and we had to turn in a dessert made in a dutch oven, I made this recipe and placed 9th out of sixty competitors!!! I changed a few things, I added walnuts, used blueberries instead of blackberries, just drizzled with honey instead of using a 1/4 cup, & drizzled icing

This cake was delicious...marvelous...this was my first time baking upside down cake,i thought it was difficult, but actually very easy to made... the sourness of the blackberry really compensate the sweetness of the cake...
