Peach Upside-Down Mini Cakes Will Be Your New Favorite Treats

The perfect summertime dessert!

You’ve heard of (and tasted) the deliciousness that is pineapple upside-down cake, yes? Well, imagine that same fruity topping and moist cake combination being accomplished with yet another summertime favorite fruit — peaches. That’s exactly what this recipe from Sweet & Savory by Shinee will deliver.

This dessert is everything you love about classic pineapple upside-down cake — easy and tasty — but it’s created with fresh peach slices, both as a base and in the cake batter. So, it’ll be chock full of peach flavor, and since that’s just the kind of fruit you’ll be craving all summer long, you won’t be able to resist these yummy treats.

Mini versions of these cakes can be created in a muffin tin, so there’s no special cake pan or baking items required. A bowl, cookie scoop and muffin tin should do the trick!

You’ll start by layering brown sugar and butter into the bottom of a muffin tin. Add a layer of fresh peach slices and then top with the cake-batter mixture, which consists of flour, baking soda, buttermilk and even more fresh peaches.

Using the cookie scoop, place equal amounts of batter into each section of the muffin tin. Then, bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

When they’re ready to eat, your peach upside-down cakes will look like this:

The recipe recommends serving these alongside a scoop of ice cream for a truly decadent treat, but you could also add a dollop of whipped cream or eat them all on their own. No matter what, they’re sure to be amazing.

To really capture the essence of the summer season, you can start to add even more fruit to your upside-down cake adventures. For example, this recipe from The Foodscape suggests pairing blueberries and peaches together for a dessert that’s sweet and juicy and perfect for summer.

By melting brown sugar and butter together to create a caramel along the bottom layer of a pan, then stacking lots of peaches and blueberries on top before adding the cake batter, you’ll create an upside-down cake that’s flavorful, moist and packed with fruit:

A recipe from Well Plated also points out that you can swap the blueberries for raspberries if you want to add a bit of tang to complement the sweetness you’ll get from the cake and the peaches in this upside-down dessert.

In the end, you’ll have a colorful, summer-ready cake:
