One does not find blueberry's easily in Bangalore/India and when I happen to find them in one of the store, my imagination went into hyper drive on ways I can use them creatively. After careful thought I decided to make blueberry upside down cake. It turned out moist, fresh and jammy because of blue berries and now my family & neighbors can't seem to have enough of it. —Amit Puri
