TWD: Flip-Over Peach Cake


This is one terrific dessert! Although the recipe calls for plums, I chose to use peaches, fresh from the farmers market. I'm picky about my plums and really only like the ones with a dark, purple-red flesh, and those plums are nearly impossible to find. Hence, the peaches.


My peaches were as large as softballs, and perfectly ripe. (Yay, farmers markets!)



I didn't change any of the spices, and I got to use my oval Pyrex baking dish.




This has to be one of my all-time favorite desserts from Dorie's cookbook. I literally could have eaten it all at once. But I didn't. I did share some with my neighbor so I wouldn't fall victim to its peachy charms.



This week's hostess was Becky of Project Domestication. She will have the recipe posted on her blog.


I suspect most of the other bakers used plums, so head over to the Tuesdays with Dorie site to find out for sure. (Use the LYL section to access the other blogs.)

This was really good! The plums were good but peaches would be great, too.

I did find firm big red plums, I've never cooked with plums. They were yummy! But I did add a few peaches, I needed a bit more fruit. It was a beautiful mix. I agree, one of my favorite desserts.

Wow, look at those peaches - gorgeous! I could have eaten this whole cake too, I was glad I didn't sample my little scoop until after I'd given the rest away :)
