We're all familiar with pineapple upside down cake, right? Well, let me introduce you to the summertime version of that classic. Caramelized peaches, buttery cake, the edges crusted with butter and caramelized sugary syrup... We are talking one amazing and delicious cake.

Is is possible for a cake to taste like summer? That would be a big YES, and I'm sure you will agree after trying this cake.

There are three layers to this cake, and they complement each other perfectly.

THE GLAZE:

Just two simple ingredients, brown sugar and butter, and less than 5 minutes are all you need to make this caramel-y sweet layer.

THE PEACHES:

Only two peaches are needed for this layer. They are arranged in a pinwheel pattern on the bottom of the pan, and look so pretty once you flip it onto a serving dish. I used thawed frozen peaches, because fresh peaches won't be available in my area for a couple more weeks. But by all means use fresh peaches if you have them.

THE CAKE:

The cake is made gluten free by using a gluten free flour blend, which you can find at most stores nowadays. The cake comes out so tender and moist, you truly can't tell it's gluten free! If gluten isn't an issue for you, you can use self-rising flour in it's place, and leave out the ground Psyllium

Did you know? Peaches have been around since the 10th century. They originated in China, and were brought to America in the 17th century.

Peach Upside Down Cake

Ingredients

For The Cake
2 cups gluten free flour blend
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground Psyllium
1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) salted butter, at room temperature (I used dairy free butter)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup milk (I used cashew milk to make it dairy free)

For The Sugar and Fruit Layer
4 tablespoons salted butter (I used dairy free butter)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 peaches, peeled and sliced (I used frozen)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.
For The Cake
Whisk or sift together the flour, baking powder and ground Psyllium. Set aside.
In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add the vanilla and then the eggs, one at a time, beating 30 seconds after each addition. Once everything has been added, beat until smooth and fully incorporated.
By hand, stir in half the flour mixture, then the milk, then the remaining flour mixture. Do not overmix; stir just until the flour is incorporated into the batter. Set aside.
Butter a 9-inch springform cake pan. Set aside
For The Sugar and Fruit Layer
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar to the butter and whisk to combine. Cook and stir for about 1 minute, or until the mixture is thick and smooth. Remove from heat.
Pour the butter/sugar mixture into the prepared pan, then arrange the peach slices in a pinwheel design on top of the sugar layer. Carefully spoon the cake batter over the fruit, then gently smooth the top of the batter with the spoon, so there is an even layer over all of the fruit.
Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the top of the cake is golden brown, begins to pull away from the sides of the pan, and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Remove cake from oven, place on a cooling rack and let rest for 10 minutes. (Do not let the cake cool completely, or it will be very difficult to remove from the pan.) Loosen cake from sides of pan if necessary, remove outer ring from springform pan, place a serving dish on top of cake, and carefully turn cake over so that the fruit is now on top. Carefully remove pan bottom.
Top with fresh blueberries if desired, allow to cool completely and serve as is, or slightly warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream gently melting on top.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.


April's tips:

Upside down cakes can be a little tricky to remove from the pan. If your sugar and fruit layer happen to stick a little, no problem. Just carefully scoop it off of the pan bottom, place it back on the cake, and smooth it down. This is very easy to do while the cake is still warm.
