Cranberry upside down cake

I love cranberries, and I love cake, but I’ve never liked a single upside down cake. Ever. Typically they are too saccharine. I mean, pineapple? We take what is likely the sweetest fruit on the planet and add a cup of brown sugar to it? My teeth feel like they are rotting just thinking about it. But then I found an intriguing version with cranberries on New York Times Cooking.

When it comes to dessert, soft/smooth + crunch = THE. BEST. I love just about any dessert that has a bit of a crunch, especially when it’s unexpected. My husband and I greatly differ on this (though he’s slowly but surely coming over to my side).
