Upside Down Peach Cake

Upside Down Peach CakeThis Upside Down Peach Cake takes advantage of fuzzy skinned peaches that show up at the height of summer and biting into these fresh and bright fruits is beautiful, but baking with them is also satisfying so here we are!

I’ve not baked frequently enough with peaches here and each new season they appear I get distracted with berries and somehow stone fruit always fall squarely in the snack arena versus the baking and snacking trifecta. Is there a way you like to bake with peaches? I’d love to know in the comments below!

Upside Down Peach Cake easy

So anyway, this upside down cake is not the first time it’s been used on this website, in fact, another long neglected stone fruit was turned into an upside down cake a couple years ago and it was such a hit it couldn’t get stuck in the archives.

Let’s talk about the cake crumb, instead of only including plain flour, there is almond flour and polenta which just adds beautifully and should be seen more frequently in baked goods, but especially with upside down peach cake is it a stellar mix!

How to prepare Upside Down Peach Cake

  • Lay those peaches down: Spread the peaches down around the base of your cake tin.
  • Beat it: Beat the butter and sugar until well combined and a little pale.
  • Liquids: Add the eggs and extract and beat until well combined.
  • Yog-urt: Add in the yogurt and beat until just combined (it’s okay if it looks a little curdled).
  • All the flours: Add the dry ingredients and beat until just combined.
  • Spoon and smooth: Spoon the cake batter over the peaches and smooth out the top.
  • Bake: Place in the oven and bake until well golden.
  • Invert: Invert onto a cooling rack or serving plate and allow to cool completely.
  • Serve: Slice and serve with a dollop of whipped cream or Greek yogurt. Dig in!

Tips for the best Upside Down Peach Cake

Peeling the peaches: The cake lends itself well to firmer peaches, however, peeling firmer peaches can be a bit difficult so you could absolutely leave the skin on if you prefer.

For that perfect crumb: You want to make sure you beat that butter and sugar until the color has somewhat paled and it’s truly creamy. And don’t over mix the cake batter once the dry ingredients have been added so the cake crumb is nice and light.
