Peach Upside Down Cake

I still have a few peaches left in the fridge so I decided to make this simple but flavorful cake. This cake might look like a difficult, fancy cake to make but it’s actually quite easy. Great for entertaining your friends or just dinner with the family. As usual if you can’t find fresh peaches you can always substitute it with plumps, nectarines or even apples.

Ingredients for topping:

4 tbsp butter
3 tbsp brown sugar
3 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced

Ingredients for the cake:

1 stick of butter (1/2 cup or 113 grms)
3/4 cup sugar
2 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tbsp of milk
1 tsp of orange zest

1. Line and greased an 8” round pan. Prepare the topping. Melt the butter and brown sugar. Pour it to the base of baking pan. Arrange the peach slices in a circle over the base. Set it aside.
2. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degree F. Cream butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Beat in the egg one at a time until well combined.
3. Add in vanilla and orange zest. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Slow down the mixer and slowly add in the flour alternately with the 2 tbsp of milk. Mix until combined.
4. Spread the batter over the peaches and bake the cake for 50 minutes or until golden brown. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes before inverting it to a serving plate.

I always made the pineapple upside down cake but never try peach. I will indeed now. Is there a recipe for peach pie using canned peaches?

Peaches are so delicious! Each time I go to a buffet, I will surely head for the peaches at the dessert section.

Peaches are at their summer peak and this is a delicious way to use up those extra peaches. A good cup of coffee and a piece of that peach cake is all that I would need to enjoy my day.

May I steal this recipe and post it on SippitySup (credit and link given naturally)? I have been asked to bring a Birthday cake to a party on Sat and baking terrifies me sometimes. But this cake I could handle. I hope. We'll see because unless it's a disaster. I'll post it with your permission. GREG

It looks good. I'm gonna try to make it tomorrow but using the canned peaches instead. I hope it'll turn out great. Thanks for sharing.

Hi there, my cake turned out beautifully !!! It's soft, it's moist and I'm very happy with it. For a moment, I thought the cake will fail coz the top was already pretty cooked but the entire cake was still so wobbly (indicating it's still uncooked inside). I left it longer in the oven and it came out great nonetheless. I think it's because I added more milk coz when I tested the batter, I thought it should be more liquid. Anyway, thanks awfully for sharing.
