Upside-Down Peach Cake Recipe : Baking With Kids

Teddy, the baker in the house, baked the most delicious UPSIDE-DOWN peach cake from one of my favorite recipes (which I’ll share with you below).

Our peach tree is laden with peaches and so we are doing all kinds of fun baking with peaches. This cake was a HIT and is all gone now.

There is something supremely satisfying about eating from your own garden. I love it so much and can’t wait until I can have more space to grow more kitchen produce.

Method :

  1. Clean and cut peaches into slices. Eat some if you can’t help it.
  2. Melt 1/4 cup of butter. Pour into the bottom of a 9 inch cake pan (no need to grease it). Sprinkle the brown sugar onto the melted butter. Arrange the peach slices on top of the brown sugar.
  3. In a bowl, cream 1/2 cups of soft butter with 1/2 cups of sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
  4. Combine flour, salt and baking powder into a separate bowl. Add this mixture to the creamed butter bowl… a little at a time, alternating with a little milk and beating well until all the flour and milk is mixed into the creamed sugar mixture. Spoon over the peaches.
  5. Bake at 350 °F (180 °C) for 45 minutes. Allow to cool for 8 minutes and turn out onto a clean plate.
  6. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Trust me, it’s delicious!

Teddy’s favorite part is licking the spoon and bowl while waiting for the cake to bake. I caught him putting his whole head into the bowl… lucky it’s hair-washing night tonight!

I know some of you might think it is dangerous to eat uncooked egg and I want you to know that I do take the dangers of eating raw egg into consideration. I licked the spoon and bowl when I baked with my grandmother when I was a kid and it’s one of my favorite childhood memories. I consciously want Teddy to have these same memories when he thinks back on his childhood with me. We buy our eggs from a local farmer and our eggs are always very fresh. Supermarket eggs are usually at least over 30 days old before they even get to the store… that’s why eating eggs could be dangerous. Farm fresh eggs are fresh and don’t carry the same dangers. As a parent, this is your decision to make.

While waiting for the cake to bake (and while Teddy was licking the bowl), I noticed how beautiful the Sunny House looked as the afternoon light gently filtered in to smell the delicious baking smells.

Teddy and I made this sweet NATURE MOBILE  a little while ago.  It’s so pretty, hanging from my kitchen chandelier.

I share many of our favorite recipes if you are looking for fun other easy baking projects to entice your kids to cook.
