Upside-Down Peach CakeMove 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.Upside-Down Peach CakeFlash 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!

I never write reviews. But had to on this one! This peach upside down cake is arguably the best dessert I’ve had. The peaches and brown sugar bottom make for the gooiest caramel layer. And the cake is much like a pound cake (my fav). I used nectarines because i had some to get rid of and i didn’t even peel them! So delicious! Will be sharing with friends and family as i live in a part of the world with a plethora of fresh peaches!! Thankyou!
