Upside down peach cake


upside down peach cakeI’m currently having a very busy and sleepless summer especially after delivering my baby. But being in Lebanon with the abundance of fresh fruits, I couldn’t but turn the oven to bake this upside down peach cake.

A very easy and quick recipe, and doesn’t require too much ingredients.  I am sure you all have them at home even the peaches, it’s the season and it is at its peak (in July and August).

Who can resist this mouth watering cake. Preheat your oven and go ahead do it, trust me it took less time to prepare it than writing the post 🙂

You need:

  • 3/4 cup softened butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4-5 peaches sliced
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 9″ pan with a quarter of the softened butter. Dust it with the brown sugar then layer the peach slices over.

In a deep bowl beat the remaining butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder and salt, beat well then add the milk. Spoon the mixture over the peaches.

Bake for 30 mns or until an inserted wooden skewer (or toothpick) comes out clean. Let it cool before inverting onto a serving plate.
