Recipe: Upside Down Peach Cake by Aniseeds

Feeling peachy keen this Wednesday morning with this recipe which has secured a spot as one of my old time favourites - upside down peach cake! My favourite bit of this cake has to be the gooey, caramelised peach topping that almost forms a layer of toffee over the entire cake and in the spirit of being OTT, I like to dowse it in warm vanilla custard before serving 😍 Would love to know what your favourite peach dessert is?

5 tablespoons peach juice from tin
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:
Add 1/2 cup of butter to 9-inch baking pan and place inside a warm oven until melted (about 5 minutes)
Remove from oven, and sprinkle brown sugar evenly over the butter
Add peach slices to the top of the butter/sugar and set aside for later
In a medium bowl, combine sifted flour, baking powder and salt, and stir
Using a hand mixer, in a metal or glass bowl, beat egg whites at high speed until fluffy. Then set aside for later
In a separate bowl beat egg yolks with sugar at medium speed until creamy
Add 5 tablespoons of peach juice, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and beat well
Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture, and beat until well combined
Fold in the egg whites with a rubber spatula
Pour cake mixture evenly over the fruit, and smooth with the spatula

Run a blunt knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake. Invert carefully onto a plate
