Peach Upside Down Cake, a deliciously moist cake made with fresh or canned Peaches. Serve with ice cream for the perfect Dessert Idea.
I have never been a lover of Upside Down Desserts, Pineapple to be exact, although it is one of those fruits that I love fresh or even in the can.
But after I made a Caramel Upside Down Apple Cake I knew it was my kind of dessert, actually pretty well everything is my kind of Dessert!
Peach Upside Down Cake
We are loving everything peaches and nectarines in Italy now and I knew another Peach Dessert had to be made. In fact I made this Peach Upside Down Cake twice, once with fresh peaches and once with canned.
To tell the truth they were both delicious and now I can have this Upside Down Peach cake with canned peaches even in the cooler weather. Bonus.
When it comes to summertime fruit I am really picky. I love Peaches, Watermelon and Cantaloupe, but I can do without Berries, Apricots, Plums (unless they are hard and crunchy, can you tell I am an Apple person?) Mangos and Honeydew.
I know I have been told more than once “Are you Crazy? Summer fruit is the best”! I will certainly make desserts with summer fruit and yeah I will eat it too.
Some Summertime Fruit Desserts I think you will enjoy!
I hope you enjoy this Peach Upside Down Dessert as much as we did, and a dessert served with a little ice cream is a dessert no one can refuse. Enjoy!
