TWD—Flip-Over Peach Cake

DSCF6897

For Tuesdays With Dorie this week, Becky from Project Domestication chose Flip-Over Plum Cake (page 42).  I made this not long after getting the list of recipes for the month.  We had family over for desserts and I decided to make this cake.

I made it with peaches instead of plums because that is what I had at the time.  The peaches are tosses with a little sugar and spice (cinnamon and ginger).  I omitted the coriander and used 2% milk.  This was definitely a different kind of cake with a very different method of pouring the cake batter over melted butter in the baking pan and then laying the fruit over the top.  Thought I was making some kind of soup there for a bit. ;)  But never fear—Dorie has done it again.  The cake turned out really well.  It was different, but surprisingly good.

The peaches sank down into the cake and the butter made nice crispy edges.  I’m not sure how else to explain it, but everyone actually really liked the cake and it was gone in a flash.  It was easy to make and I’d probably make it again for other occasions.

These are literally the few pictures I snapped before the cake was eaten up!

Becky will have the recipe on her blog.  This is a great on to have in your aresnal.  Give it a try for something different and unique.  Of course the cake was perfect served with a dollop of whipped cream on top.

I've been looking for an alternative to the traditional fruit cobblers and crisps. This looks like just the recipe for me to try! I'll probably try to make it a little healthier with less sugar and some whole grain flour. Then blow it all with ice cream on top!

I too was surprised by this recipe. It was delicious. I made it with big red plums. I've never cooked with plums, I'll make this again with many fruits!

Mari said...

It looks very tasty! I would love to make this pie soon!

I don't bake with peaches very often since I can't get good ones where I live. Your cake looks so perfect, I can't wait to try this again with other fruits.

Is anything not improved with a dollop of whipped cream? :) I loved this one too despite my initially low expectations.

I love this cake, and would love to try it with plums also. However..I can't stop gawking at the pumpkin spiced krispy treats below! Your desserts are always phenomenal!

Rachel said...

Amanda said...

That kind of reminds me of dump cake :) I don't know why, but for some reason this just sounds super good to me right now, and I'm not even that big on peaches!

This looks like a dessert I would LOVE! I think I'd like peaches a lot better than plums. Good choice!
