Customizable dessert idea: Peach upside-down cake

This peach upside-down cake is one of the best cakes I have ever made. It was super easy to make, you won’t need special ingredients or tools for this peach upside-down dessert. You can personalize this cake according to season. In summer I use peaches because they are in season, but in autumn and winter, I will try them with pears, apples, or plums.

How to make a peach upside-down cake

  1. Butter a 23 cm (9-inch) cake or pie pan. Line the bottom of the pan with a round of parchment paper and butter that as well.
  2. Wash and pit the peaches and cut them into thin slices (about 1-1,2 cm or ½-inch thick). Arrange the slices in a pattern on the bottom of the pie pan.
  3. Drizzle the peaches with some honey. I used 2-3 tbsp. Or with homemade caramel sauce.
  4. Mix melted butter, olive oil, brown sugar, and white sugar in another medium bowl.
  5. Mix together yogurt and milk, and add this mixture to the sugar mixture.
  6. Add vanilla extract and eggs.
  7. Mix in flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon.
  8. Spread the batter evenly over the peaches and honey or caramel.
  9. Preheat the oven to 175 °C (350 Fahrenheit) and bake the cake for 50 to an hour. Insert a toothpick, if it comes out clean, the cake is done.
  10. Remove from the oven and set on a cooling rack. Run a knife around the sides, place a platter on top and invert the cake onto the platter. Remove the parchment paper.
  11. Serve the cake warm or cooled to room temperature, with crème fraîche or vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream on the side.
