Peach Upside-down Cake

Here’s a simple cake for tea time, or maybe for a late night snack :), or even for a dessert, why not after a light meal? Very affordable and especially quick to do really, ideal for family/ friends gathering which doesn’t require you to spend too much time for the preparation , yet something which can be presented exquisitely, enjoyable and very pleasing to the palates as well as to the eyes.

Actually I found this recipe page (torn from a magazine long long ago …) among the other recipe papers that I have heaped in my note book (I like to copy down my recipes in a paper to visualize the method clearly before trying them out, that is ME, the old fashioned way, hehehe, and also it helps me to practice my handwriting ok whatever…..) and the recipe calls for Ananas. But I’ve done the same with some peaches. You can use either fresh or canned fruits for this recipe and you can substitute the peaches with Apples or Apricots or Pears or Cherries as well. Happy Baking!!



Ingredients:

4 peaches, peeled, halved and drained
500g brown sugar
150g potato starch
150g all purpose flour
20g baking powder
15g vanilla sugar
150g butter
8 eggs
40ml milk

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Melt the butter gently on low heat.

Beat the eggs thoroughly in a big bowl.

In another bowl, mix together 400g of brown sugar, vanilla sugar, the flour and the potato starch along with the baking powder.

Now add the whipped eggs to the above mixture followed by the melted butter and the milk.

Mix everything well.

Sprinkle the rest of the sugar in a greased round cake pan. Just sprinkle a tablespoon of water on top of it and caramelize it in the oven for 5 minutes.

Remove and place the halved peaches (flat side towards the pan) on the caramel. Place this 15 minutes in the freezer.


Pour the prepared cake mixture in the pan and bake for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.


Remove from the oven and wait for 10 minutes and invert the pan over a serving plate. Enjoy!!!

Dear all, thank you for all the appreciations!!!

Dear Priya,

thank you very much; I recommend Philadelphia but you may use St Moret too, which gives best results and which I've already tried. then, my last choice would be faisselle, but I 'd not be sure about the result. don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions. have a nice day!!!
