Blueberry Upside-Down Cake



3 cups fresh wild blueberries
½ cup lightly packed brown sugar 
¼ cup unsalted butter 


1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup yogurt
¾ cup yellow cornmeal 
4 eggs
1 tbsp baking powder 
2 tsp vanilla extract 
1 tsp salt 



Using a 10-inch cast iron skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar and cook, stirring constantly, until brown sugar is completely melted (about 8 minutes). Remove from heat and distribute blueberries over butter-sugar glaze and set aside. 


In large bowl, sift together flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt; set aside. Using an electric mixer fitted with the paddle atttachent, cream together butter and sugar until very light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla and mix until smooth. On a low speed, add the flour mixture. Fold in yogurt. Spread batter evenly over blueberries in the skillet. 

Bake in 350°F oven for about 50 minutes, until toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes, then run a knife around inside edge of skillet. Invert a large plate over skillet and, using oven mitts, turn skillet upside down to flip cake over onto plate. 

Note: If cake cools down too much it may not release from pan. If this happens heat cake for 2-3 minutes on stovetop before attempting to release it again.

Creamy Hummus

It takes minutes to throw together, especially if you use canned chickpeas, and homemade hummus tastes so much better then store-bought that you'll never go back to buying ready-made.
