Peach Upside Down Cake


My mother-law, whom I absolutely adore picked some fresh Peaches this week. She put up as many as she could and gave me a bunch of them to take home. They were so delicious and sweet!

As I got down to my last 3 peaches I decided to try to make a Peach Upside Down cake using the same method as I use for my famous Bananna Upside Down Cake! To make it even easier I used a Vanilla Cake Mix!

My brother was coming to town and bringing me some fresh Razor Clams, and I thought this would be a nice ending to our feast. It turned out beautifully and was extremely tasty!

1/2 cube of non salted butter
2/3 cup of brown sugar
1 Cake Mix (your choice, I used French Vanilla)
3-4 Peaches, skin removed and core removed, sliced

Preheat your oven to 325

You need a round cake pan, non stick is preferable

Place the butter and the brown sugar into your cake pan, and melt on the stovetop, mixing constantly until it incorporates and becomes like liquid carmel

Arrange your peach slices in the carmel mixture overlapping if possible

In the meantime assemble your cake mix according to package directions, and carefully spoon/pour over the peaches

Bake until puffy and brown about an hour (this can vary, check at 50 minutes)

Transfer to rack and cool

Invert onto cake plate or serving platter

I served with whipped cream

That's the BEST thing abt the upside down cakes...that sticky, moist top!

highlyirritable said...

That looks fantastic.

And I was releived to see that the request for clams resulted in a seperate dish. I thought you were up to some funky fusion thing here...

Grace said...

wow--you really scored with such an awesome mother-in-law! this is a fine way to use up the last of the peaches. i can get behind anything using only four ingredients!

Mom said...

The cake looks lovely and I'm sure it was delicious, but the peach pie was really top notch in flavor and eye appeal. I adore you, too, daughter. You are a great cook.
