Peach Upside Down Cake Recipe

Peach Upside Down Cake Recipe

Summertime requires fruit inspired everything!

I had several peaches that needed to be used, and since I HATE wasting food, I decided to create a peach upside down cake recipe.

You may be familiar with the ever popular, pineapple upside down cake, but if you love peaches, give this a try. It may become your new go-to fave!

You can serve this delightful dessert warm with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream or at room temperature as is.
