1 Peach (or nectarine) cake recipe on Wed Aug 09, 2017 7:35 pm

I was gifted about 50 lbs of nectarines the other day and had to come up with a few creative ideas to use them all.  One thing I made was nectarine cake (or more like a quick bread).  It's really good and is a perfect way to use up some of the nectarines or peaches you have.  Here's the link

Looks yummy, Judy! You're fortunate to have generous friends to share the bounty. Somehow, free ingredients make everything even sweeter!

Those DO look good. I love nectarines and peaches, too.

I presume that's your blog, Judy, and your picture. I just about died when I clicked on "Simply Impressive" at the bottom of the recipe, as you are a DEAD RINGER for my sister-in-law's sister, Liz! No lie -- a real doppelgänger!!! My husband was snoozing next to me and just woke up and I just showed him your picture and he was just like me: "Oh, wow, she's a dead ringer for Liz!" I'm going to copy your pic and send it to my SIL. Liz has gained a lot of weight over the past couple of years when I last saw her at my sister's funeral back in November 2015. But when she was proper weight, it's truly amazing as you're identical in appearance to Liz!

Again, thanks for the recipe, Liz, I mean Judy!

That's funny. I'll have to look at the photo that's there. I've lost a ton of weight over the last few years. I'll have to see if it's a 'before' or 'after' picture.

Individual Peach Upside-Down Cake

By Mr. Brown. Published on June 27, 2015. 18

I have always felt the marriage of cake and fruit to be powerful magic, especially when the elements in question are subtly segregated. A good example of this approach is the single-serving peach upside-down cake, which just might be my favorite breakfast food of all time.


Individual Peach Upside-Down Cake
Yields 4

Ingredients
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 medium peaches, peeled
2 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, optional
Instructions
1 Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2 Divide 2 tablespoons of the butter among 4 (6-ounce) ramekins. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and set aside. Evenly divide the brown sugar among the ramekins, sprinkling it into the bottoms of the dishes.
3 Cut each peach into 12 to 14 pieces. Lay the peaches on top of the sugar, evenly dividing them among the dishes. Set aside.
4 Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until just combined.
5 Pour the batter over the peaches, dividing the mixture evenly among the dishes. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the cake reaches an internal temperature of 190 degrees F.
6 Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of each dish and turn it upside down onto a plate. Serve immediately with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.

Ohhh, I love a fruit upside down cake.....and peach sounds wonderful.

But I'd probably just go with my usual box cake mix and do it in my big cast iron skillet just like I do with my pineapple one. I agree completely that a fruit dessert is never a bad way to go.

While the peach upside down cake sounds fabulous, I was working on something with a lot less calories and sugar. Different audiences, I guess. I sure wish I could eat either of them without a problem.

Ooh, Norm, this sounds good. Love that it's for individual cakes, too. I recently bought 4 new ramekins, the biggest I could find. They weren't big enough for what I wanted them for, but they will be perfect for this!

I read Judy's message, too, and just wanted to say I like ALL the recipes, the ones with lots of calories like this one, and anything Judy can come up with using less sugar and having less calories. Even if you're not watching your weight, it's nice to have both!

The low sugar, lower calorie cake recipe with fruit that you're working on will suffice!
