peach almond upside down cake

peach almond upside down cake

growing up, pineapple upside ~ down cake was a staple in our house
what's not to love about an upside down cake - just sweet enough cake over caramelized fruit and sugar .....to me this cake belongs to the 80's, but after a little research the upside down cake has been around a whole lot longer - since 1924!

pure genius adding in the maraschino cherry - give that lady a super high five for creativity

thursdays are a great day - this is the day of csa pick up at picnic rock

locally grown fruit is seductive -it lures you in with its intoxicating smell, bright bold colors & the promise that summer is still here for a little while longer

this week nh grown peaches were in & i was lucky enough to have a few tucked away in my csa

obviously this was a call for celebration - and what goes hand in hand with any celebration

duh. cake of course!

 
peach almond upside down cake

these peaches deserved to be front & center
not hidden within the cake

an upside ~ down cake was the answer -
a perfect way to let the flavors & colors of the peach shine through

almonds are finely ground adding taste and texture to the topping

the allspice and garam masala lends a subtle spiciness warmth to each bite

since the peaches are the main focus of the cake it's not a bad idea to create some type of pattern

plus pretty things just taste better - it only takes an extra minute or two

your friends will think you are amazing

personally - i think there is no better way to show off summer peaches

a perfect way to celebrate the last month of summer & my sisters upcoming visit to nh - this cake will be making an appearance twice next weekend at the last of this summers bbq's

if you need to be watchful of nut allergies - leave out the almonds and add in some blueberries which are still in season or give your peaches some company with another stone fruit such as plums

enjoy with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream - though this cake is great naked, all on its own

  15. The cake upside down can be a bit tricky, you need to make sure to cook the fruit, caramelize the sugar and bake the sponge. Before turning the cake, it must stand for about 10 minutes so that the caramel can solidify but still soft enough so that the fruit does not stick to the bottom.

    and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  34. hand tied extensions relate to the method of applying the extension, which involves beading the natural hair and afterwards hand-tying the extension weft to it. They don't require any tape, glue, or heat to make. Similar to the beaded weft method, hand tied extensions are made by attaching beads to a row of a customer's natural hair.
    Wefts are attached to your natural hair with hand tied extensions. To begin, your hairdresser will section your hair. They'll take little sections of hair one at a time from here. Then they'll delicately place small silicone-lined beads in the hair and lock them in place. This establishes the foundation on which your extensions will be built. After the beadwork is finished, it's time to add the hair!
