peach_upsidedown_cakeThis cake is filled with fresh peaches, roasted Saigon cinnamon, roasted ground ginger and toasted pecans,  and that makes it different.

Tips for making Praline Peach Upside-Down Cake:

  • Canned peaches or frozen peaches that have been defrosted can be substituted for the fresh peaches.
  • For more flavor, try adding a tablespoon of bourbon to the butter/brown sugar mixture.
  • Whatever you do, don’t let the cake cool for longer than 10 minutes in the pan before you remove it. It will start to stick as the butter and sugar on the bottom of the pan cool and harden.
