Wonderful Caramelized Upside-Down Peaches over a light and fluffy cake.Move over pineapple, peaches are in town! I have been checking off my bucket list of things to do this summer. On the top of my list is a visit to the Amish Country Store and Charcuterie in Maine. As I was checking out, I overheard another customer asking when the peaches were being delivered? As in Fresh Peaches? I skipped over to the desk and placed my order.Flash forward two weeks, a call came in telling me my peaches were ready to be picked up! Hooray! While my family was visiting, I thought we could all take a trip to see the Amish Country store and pick up my peaches. A CASE of peaches! The largest sweetest peaches I have ever eaten. I started writing out my list of peach desserts that I wanted to make this summer, with an Upside Down Peach Cake coming in first!
My grandson was celebrating his birthday, so I thought the cake would be a great addition to the party. 15 guests with happy bellies and many rave reviews for this luscious cake. My daughter in law even requested that I make this cake again ASAP!
With a case of peaches in hand, get ready for more peach recipes to come!
