Spiced Peach Upside Down Cake

It’s peach season and my family couldn’t be happier. Peaches are probably the number one fruit eaten in our house, they even top strawberries. Peach season hits and it’s a guarantee that I will be canning, drying, making fruit leather, swapping out fresh peaches for canned for this Easy Peach Cobbler recipe and testing a few new recipes every year. This year I bring you peach week on Farmer’s Wife Rambles.

Peach Upside Down Cake

I found several new peach recipes to present to the family this year and these five made the cut. They are packed with flavor, the kids can help make everyone of them and for the most part they can be mixed and baked in less than an hour. That makes me happy on busy school nights. Nothing like a warm dessert to serve to the family that cooks while homework is being finished.

Journey along with me this week as I present to you our top 5 peach recipes of the year.

The Cast For Peach Upside Down Cake

Upside Down Filling Ingredients
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 fresh peaches sliced

Cake Ingredients
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 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup milk

Directions For Peach Upside Down Cake

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2.  Melt 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch round cake pan.  Sprinkle brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon over the melted butter.  Arrange peach slices around the pan.  You can be creative and fan the peach slices or lazy like I did and toss them in the bottom and make sure that the whole bottom is covered.

3.  In large bowl cream the butter and sugar until fluffy, add egg and beat for 30 seconds.  In another medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, ground nutmeg and ground cinnamon.

4.  Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternating with 1/2 cup milk.  Beat well after each addition.  This will help your cake to remain fluffy and not rock hard.

5.  Spread cake batter over the top of the peaches and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown and and inserted toothpick comes out clean.

6.  Remove from oven and invert onto a serving platter.  LEAVE the cake pan on for 10 minutes to help cake retain it’s shape.

7.  Serve with vanilla ice cream or whip cream and a tall glass of milk.
