Upside Down Peaches and Cream Cake


The letter for this month's AlphaBakes is U and my thoughts immediately turned to an upside down cake. I decided to make something a little different to a traditional pineapple upside down cake and came across this recipe on BBC Good Food. It's a simple sponge recipe topped with peaches and filled with a clotted cream filling. The sponge was light and moist and I loved the peaches and cream combination. It was so good that I made the cake again shortly after with different fruits which I will blog about later. 

As mentioned, I'm entering this to AlphaBakes which is hosted by myself this month and co hosted by Caroline from Caroline Makes. The letter is U for upside down cake. 



I'm also sending this to Made with Love Mondays hosted by Javelin Warrior where the idea is to make everything from scratch. 





 toss peaches in brown sugar 

 arrange peaches in a single layer then cover with cake batter 

 spread a generous layer of clotted cream filling on the plain cake then place the peach-topped cake on top.

  1. Now I'm craving peaches so bad, Ros! This is torture... I love the layer of clotted cream between the cake halves and this is a certain must for fresh peaches...

    1. The clotted cream worked beautifully and this would be brilliant when peaches are in season.

  3. What a clever choice for "U"! I was wondering what people were going to come up with for that letter. Great looking cake, love the thick layer of cream in the middle.

    1. Yes definitely although I'm sure it would work well with tinned peaches too!

  11. What a fantastic cake Ros. I love it that you filled it with the world's best cream. And peaches and cream is such a classic. I'm still trying to think of a U that isn't an upside down cake, but ...
