Peach Upside Down Cake

This recipe comes from the cookbook Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. My sister first told me about this cookbook a couple of years ago.  I checked it out from my library and instantly loved the cookbook.  The pictures, the recipes, and the stories that go with each recipe.  I really wanted this cookbook, but it is a bit expensive.  Then I found a website where members are baking their way through this book.  I loved the website and would check it weekly, but I still really wanted the cookbook.

I gave up on the idea of the cookbook because it was so expensive, but then I found it new for $15. I could not believe the price. I was so glad I waited.  I actually bought two copies because it was such a good price, and I gave my sister one as a gift.

I have tried several recipes out of this cookbook and all of them have turned out well. I recently tried her version of upside down cake.  Dorie of course, puts her twist on it giving you two versions.  The main recipe is for Cranberry Upside Down cake and then she gives you an alternative recipe for a peach version. Since I went to the peach orchard recently, I knew I wanted to try the peach version.

I don’t remember ever having a peach upside down cake and thought this recipe sounded very good. So, I gave it a try and it was really good. Upside down cake is one of those old fashioned type comfort food desserts. They are so simple, yet so good and this recipe is no exception.

I think this is best served warm with a little whipped cream on top. Enjoy!

  1. This sounds decadent. We went to the VA mtns yesterday and came back with fresh peaches. Now I know what to do with them. Thanks!
