Peach Apple Upside Down Cake – Hands down the best Peach Apple Upside Down cake I ever made. This cake recipe is classic and is bursting with flavor.
You don’t have to spend time making the caramel sauce, the caramel layer is formed under the cake batter while it’s baking and I’ll show you how.
Making Peach Apple Upside Down Moist Cake.
Baking to me is not just a hobby but a way to bring inner comfort especially when I’m making something delectable like this Peach Apple upside down cake.
I’m not crazy about frosting cakes as you know by now and upside down cakes not only look amazing but tastes incredibly rich and delicious.
Therefore, I bake it for my guests and serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
I made a Mixed Fruit Upside Down Cake sometimes ago and it was a great hit in case you wanted to check it out. I have many other versions of upside down cakes saved on my PC, but this recipe takes the cake 🙂
Make the Caramel Layer Without the Fuss!
To make a good looking and delicious peach apple upside down cake, you will use dark brown sugar which will form the bottom caramel layer, you also need to pick ripe sweet peaches otherwise your cake will taste sour and we really don’t want to ruin this wonderful piece of art.
The rest is really easy as you’ll note in the method for making this cake below. I’ve added oil and butter to the batter, this will prevent the cake from drying and allow it to create moist crumbs.
Let’s Bake this Cake!
