This past weekend I was trying my hand at creating an upside down peach cake. I wanted individual servings though- so this way everyone has their own delicious sweet cake. Making these upside down peach cakes in muffin tins was a really easy way to use the peaches that are now in season.
I did not make a syrup ahead of time I simply put the ingredients in the bottom of each tin so that the oven does the work – not me! These cakes are perfect!
