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.
It will be fun to check out other blogger’s Flip-Over Cakes at TWD Headquarters.
