Peach Upside-Down Cake

Hi Everyone I just reached 200 subscribers on youtube! YAY!! To celebrate I baked this delicious and super easy to make Peach Upside-Down Cake!

Ingredients:

4-5 Large peaches
1 1/2 cups cake flour
2 sticks unsalted butter, soften
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
2/3 cup cream
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/4 cup nut or almonds (optional)

Preheat oven to 375°.

Simmer the peaches in boiling water for 2 minutes to soften their skin. Drain and set aside to cool.

Combine cake flour, salt, nutmeg, and baking powder, mix well and set aside.

Melt 1/4 of the butter and pour it into a baking pan, tilt the pan to make sure that all the sides are covered in butter, add 3/4 of the brown sugar and spread it evenly all over the bottom of the pan. (if you are adding nuts or almonds, sprinkle them all over the brown sugar.)

Remove the skin from the peaches, and cut the peaches into 1/4 inch slices.

Arrange the peaches slices over the bottom and around the sides of the pan. Decorate the pan with the peaches any way you want it. Set aside.

In an electric mixer, cream the butter with the remaining brown sugar and granulated sugar. Blend at medium low speed for about 2 minutes or until  everything is incorporated into a creamy batter.

Add the eggs, one a time and continue to blend for another minute or until the eggs are completely blended with the rest of the batter.

Add the vanilla extract and also add 1/3 of the flour mixture.
(we are going to incorporate the flour in 3 parts. alternating between flour and liquid, to make the cake extra fluffy)

Add the orange juice and the second part of the flour mix, right after that, add the cream and the rest of the flour mixture. Beat at high speed for 2 minutes.

Spoon the batter carefully over the peaches, shake the pan a little bit to make sure the batter has settle down in the pan.

Bake at 375° for 45 to an hour or until the cake is cooked.

(to know if the cake is cooked, insert a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean, then the cakes is ready.)

Let it cool for 15 minutes and then transfer to a plate.


And that's it, you are ready to eat!

Add some whipped cream if you like! :D
