Peach-Blueberry Upside-Down Cake

Hi there friends!

We’re into a new week of the summer and I’m sharing a recipe for a cake that is made with two well-known summer fruits.  Peaches and blueberries.  I absolutely love peaches and Hubby loves blueberries, so this cake combines two of our favorites.  Definitely a win-win! 🙂

If you’ve ever looked at the cake recipes that I’ve posted, you’ll notice that I’ve previously posted two upside-down cake recipes.  The reason is simple…I LOVE upside-down cakes!  Let’s count the ways…

  1. You can use all kinds of seasonal or canned fruits in them, so they are a great year-round cake.
  2. You get to use your “artsy” skills to arrange the fruits in the pan.IMG_6205
  3. The cake batter is a simple, no fail recipe.
  4. You get the thrill of “upside-downing” your cake after it’s cooled.
  5. They don’t need frosting.
  6. And lastly, they are absolutely  YUMMY! 🙂

Here’s my recipe.  You’ll notice that I switched out the vanilla extract for almond extract.  I love how almond tastes with blueberries…I use it in most of my blueberry recipes.

Peach-Blueberry Upside-Down Cake

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1-2 sliced peaches
  • approximately 2 handfuls blueberries
  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 9-inch round cake pan with non-stick spray.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in microwave in small bowl.  Stir in brown sugar and water.
  • Pour butter-brown sugar mixture into cake pan.  Then arrange the peaches and blueberries in the cake pan and set aside.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix with mixer on low until combined, then on medium for one minute.
  • Carefully spoon cake batter into the pan with peaches and blueberries.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool.
  • When cooled, carefully loosen cake from side of pan.  Place cake plate on top of pan and carefully invert cake.

Although it is a very pretty cake, I just could not get a good picture of it.  You’ll have to take my word for it. 🙂

Enjoy! ❤
