Upside Down Cake Recipe
Upside Cakes get their name,by putting the glaze and fruits on the bottom of the pan, then the cake batter. After baking you carefully flip the cake out onto the serving platter to reveal the fruit & glaze topping.

A traditional upside cake is pineapple with cherries, but I wanted to put a fresh springtime spin on it and use peaches and blueberries. The cake itself is absolutley delightful. It is a lightly sweet cake which balances the brown sugar and sweetness of the peaches and blueberries perfectly. It is a super soft, moist, and airy texture that your fork just slides through like butter, This one is totally a keeper.

Grab a good vanilla ice cream to serve along side this cake if you like, it would be a great addition.
Also, the recipe calls for almond extract which I  love, but I bet a lemon extract would also be a refreshing addition with the blueberries also. What about some fresh apricot halves instead of the peaches? feel free to play around with this recipe just a bit!

Now.. let's get baking!
