Why does pineapple upside down cake get all the glory?! I mean, I love a good pineapple upside down cake, but this peach version takes the cake for me!
I love summer and all the fresh produce that's bursting with flavor - strawberries, blueberries and eventually tomatoes and peppers. However, my favorite summer produce has always been fresh peaches!! I always make sure to grab dozens once they're perfectly ripe, because if I don't, there will be none left to bake with. From peach pie to Peach Muffins and this Peach Upside Down Cake, you just can't go wrong!
How do you make Peach Upside Down Cake from scratch?
There are two main components of a peach upside down cake: the peach topping (or bottom - however you want to look at it) and the cake batter. For the peach topping, you'll start by adding the melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to the bottom of the pie pan. Then, you'll arrange the peeled and sliced peaches around the pie plate as you can see in the photo below.
Then, you'll make the cake batter and spread it over the peaches and bake. About halfway through the bake, you'll want to cover it with foil so it doesn't get too dark (it'll cook the center without browning too much). Once the cake is done, you'll remove the foil, let cool for 5 minutes then take a butter knife and loosen the cake from the edges.
Next, you'll invert the cake onto a serving platter or plate. If any of the peaches are sticking to the plate, no worries. Simply use a spatula to place them on top of the cake...nobody will ever know! 🙂 I like to serve the cake warm with whipped topping!
How to Store Peach Upside Down Cake
As I mentioned above, I enjoy this cake the most warm. However, it's also great at room temperature! If you have leftovers, I recommend covering the cake with plastic wrap and enjoying within the next two days.
