As per Ashlie’s request, here’s another of my favourite recipes (which I haven’t made in a while). I found it on allrecipes.com:
Peach Upside Down Cake
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 5 fresh peaches – peeled, pitted and halved
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- Melt 1/4 cup butter or margarine in an 8 inch square pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar and nutmeg. Arrange peach halves, cut side down, in pan.
- In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Spread batter over peaches.
- Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 35 to 40 minutes, or until lightly browned on top. Remove cake from oven, and let stand in pan for 5 minutes; invert onto serving platter. Serve with whipped cream.
And here’s the note I posted on the review section of the website:
A delicious recipe, no doubt. Check your cake carefully, though; mine took about 55 minutes to bake. I would recommend letting it cool longer than listed, too, as mine fell apart when I flipped it out onto a plate. But crumbled or not, it’s definitely tasty, and not very difficult. (Especially great when you have lots of leftover ripe peaches!)
