Peach Blueberry Upside Down Cake #SpringSweetsWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Peach Blueberry Upside Down Cake is light airy, flavorful cake with a colorful fruit and brown sugar glaze baked right in.

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.

Sponsor shoutout: Swiss Diamond provided me with this amazing 2.3 quart  XD induction nonstick Casserole pan. I am a huge fan of Swiss Diamond's XD nonstick coating, which now has 20% more diamond crystals- increasing it's durability and nonstick properties! It just stands up to daily use and cleaning so much better! This pan can go from stovetop, to oven to table! I am actually going to get rid of my collection of saucepans and just use this one pan! It is so versatile!
Today I made my cake right in this pan. from melting the butter and brown sugar glaze on the stove top, to then adding the batter and finish  baking it in the oven all in one pan! It turned out perfect!



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!
