This Peach Upside Down Cake, in its purest form, is just a simple butter cake with fruit on the bottom. But, the addition of a sprinkle of brown sugar on the bottom and a layer of beautifully sliced peaches take it from simple, to simply amazing! If you are reading this and it is the heart of summer, this cake is the perfect way to put your peaches to use.
The freshest peaches of summer are the real key to making this recipe amazing! Frozen just won't cut it. It is one of those things that I only get to make once or twice a year, and I'm ok with it because it just makes it that much extra special!
I was able to get my hands on a big bunch of fresh peaches last summer and I HAD to put them to work to create some delicious foods of all kinds. This recipe came about with the imagination of all the amazing flavors of a pineapple upside-down cake but swapping the fruit for peaches. And I have to say it was THE right decision.
I made this Peach Upside Down Cake one evening and it was completely gone by the coffee time the next morning. It didn't stand a chance. But just know it's that good, you need it in your life!

Bringing your Peach Upside Down Cake together
The real beauty of this cake is that it comes together in about 5 minutes. Then you just have to wait for it to bake. That is the hardest part. It will fill your home with the best smell, you'll be counting the minutes till it's ready.
I mix my cake in the KitchenAid just because it makes it that much easier and faster. But don't let that slow you down from making this recipe if you don't have one. A bowl and a wooden spoon or spatula are all you really need.
I like to bake my cake in a square pan for a little something different. I like how it mimics the shape the sliced fruit makes, and is different than pineapple upside-down cake, differentiating it.
When you cut your peaches, I like to start by cutting one in 4. Then cut those 4ths in half. This leaves me with a well-sized slice that will balance the flavor of the cake. ith a big piece of tart peach with the sweet buttery cake.
I could go on and on all day. The LOVE I have for this cake is immense! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

So good! Do you think I can try this with other fruits? Any to avoid? Thank you for a beautiful recipe!
Thank you! Yes, this base cake recipe is perfect and would pair with any fruit you want to put under it. The juicier the better, that just means more syrup when you flip!
Made this today for company and served it for dessert with vanilla ice cream. Everyone loved it and will definitely make again. Thank you Kendell for a great recipe!
I am so glad to hear that Irene! I LOVE this recipe so much, and the vanilla ice cream sounds like a great pairing 🙂
Hi can i swap egg to flax egg?
I made two tonight and the house smells so good! I used the last of the peaches from @peaches.la_ and knew I needed to make this. This recipe with those peaches was a perfect match. Thank you for the perfect dessert recipe.
I love hearing this Shawna! This cake does really fill the house with amazing aromas and I love Peaches.la TOO!
I have bags of flash frozen peaches in the freezer for our orchard. Any instructions on how to use the frozen peaches over fresh peaches?
Cathy, they should work the same. Might be a little more juicy when you flip, so just be careful, but the cake will soak it up and make it even more delicious!
