Peach Upside Down cake

I’m currently obsessed with peaches and was planning on making a peach dessert of sorts when I found myself in need of a quick cake to take to a friend’s house. It turned out so well that I thought those of you who perhaps don’t bake because you don’t have time or find it difficult, might try this peach upside down cake at home.

I used a simple sponge recipe that I also use to make Victoria Sandwich cakes:

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 oz butter
  • 6oz of self raising flour
  • 6oz of caster sugar

Beat the butter and sugar together, then mix in the beaten eggs and the flour and you’re done.

For the peach top, I browned the peaches in some butter and sugar to give them some colour, otherwise the cake top can look a little anaemic.

Arrange the peaches in a pretty pattern on the bottom of your greased cake tin and pour the cake mix on top then bake for 40-50 minutes at 180 degrees, until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Turn the tin upside down and remove the cake so the peaches are now on top. I used a sprung tin with a removable base, which comes in handy when gently peeling the cake off the peaches. Sprinkle with some granulated sugar whilst warm and serve warm with cream or ice cream, or cold with tea and gossip 🙂

Of course, you can do it with any fruit – when I was a child I used tinned pineapples, or you could use apples in autumn or other berries for a more pudding-y dessert. Right now, peaches are so delicious though, I think they’re perfect for this.

Friday Food: Honey Roast Peaches

I’m a huge fan of a peach. When they’re in season there’s nothing better and I’m currently stuffing myself with the flat white peaches that are in the supermarkets right now.

I love the adaptability of peaches in cooking too, I’ve made a peach and bresaola salad before now and they make great summer crumble or cobblers. I wanted to make something similar to todays recipe but then I realised when I spotted this recipe over on Rose’s blog, The Londoner, that I actually couldnt do it better than she has. Rose has a knack of writing about food that is ridiculously indulgent and making it sound super sexy. I’m not going to argue with her on this dish.
