how to make upside down peach cake recipe

In the summer when peaches are plentiful, I love to make this upside down peach cake.  The cut-up peaches are layered on the bottom of the baking dish, covered with the sweet batter and baked.  When the cake is ready, each slice is served inverted onto a plate – the slice is upside down so the peaches are on top!

Upside down peach cake is a perfect summer dessert, and it can be served warm with a scoop of ice cream, and it’s also good cold.  When the peaches are in season, this upside down peach cake is a must to make!  Give it a try – it will be a hit at your next summer barbeque!

Upside Down Peach Cake Recipe


  • 6 large peaches
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Slice the peaches and discard the pits. Put the peach slices on the bottom of a non-stick 8×12 baking pan in a single layer.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Mix in the sugar. Add butter and mix until combined. Add flour and baking powder and stir until combined.
  • Pour the cake batter over the peach slices. If necessary, spread the batter with your hands so it covers the peach slices.
  • Put the cake in the oven and bake for 35 minutes.
  • Invert the cake before serving so the peaches are on top – either invert the whole cake onto a plate, or slice it first, and invert the individual slices.

Here’s the picture of this peach cake right out of the oven – it is not yet “upside down” as the baked batter is on top of peaches :)
