I had a basket of peaches sitting idle and was looking to make something delicious out of it. I googled for peach recipes and i found this wonderful upside down cake here. Thank you Susan for this wonderful recipe!
The original recipe calls for a cup of vanilla soy milk and i replaced that with about 3/4 cup milk and 1/3 cup peach flavoured yogurt. Here is the recipe..

Ingredients:
  • All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
  • Peach - 2, sliced
  • Milk - 3/4 cup
  • Yogurt - 1/3 cup (I used peach flavoured)
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger - 1 inch, shredded
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Water - few tbsp
  • Lemon zest - 1 tsp

How to make it:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a non-stick 8 inch square or round pan and dust with flour (The sugar syrup at the bottom of the pan is going to be very sticky so grease the pan with enough spray and line with a parchment paper).
Cut peaches into thin slices. Mix 1/4 cup sugar with little water and cook on medium heat until it starts thickening and bubbly. Add the peaches and mix well. In a bowl, add flour, baking powder, ginger, lemon zest, 1/2 cup sugar and salt. Add the milk and yogurt and beat until well mixed without any lumps. In the cake pan, first add the sugar syrup with cooked peaches. Pour the prepared batter over the peaches and bake for about 30 minutes or until done. Let it cool for a while. Invert the cake carefully and let it cool completely. Cut and serve with a scoop of ice-cream. Hmmm... it was perfect!

    Cake looks so soft and perfect - what a tasty way to celebrate 100 posts. Since this is low fat and eggless, if you'd like you can send it to madhuram's event.


  17. Looks very tempting Anu..and the best part is its eggless..Will definitely give a try though with som other fruit as its difficult to get peach fruit here.
    Regards,
    Priya
