Kansasgirl: Thank you for posting your recipe. I have made upside-down gingerbreads with many fruit variations – such as banana, peach, pear, and pineapple – now cranberry is on the radar! (I must compliment you for the inclusion of maple syrup. Good understanding of flavor pairing. Perhaps you may like to check out my pumpkin-cranberry custard recipe posted in a near-by thread?)
