Berry Upside-Down Cake With Candied Pecans


1 box cake mix of choice
3 C. dried or candied fruits of choice
1/2 C. pecans
1/2 C. unsalted butter
1 C. brown sugar
2 T. light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger


Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease the inside of two 9-inch cake pans. Line the pans with parchment paper.

Prepare the cake batter according to package instructions and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger. Stir frequently over low heat until the butter is melted and the sugar has dissolved.

Pour mixture evenly between the prepared pans. Distribute the fruit and pecans evenly onto the batter. Spoon the prepared cake batter into each pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Let stand for five minutes before inverting cakes onto serving plates.
