    This peach cherry upside down cake is amazing. It was a big hit with my family. Everyone loved it and it went very fast. It is so delicious, moist and it’s loaded with fresh fruits. And the almond extract and the almond flour go wonderfully together. The almond flavor in this cake is fantastic!

    It would be perfect to serve this peach cherry upside down cake in the afternoon with a cup of tea or coffee. This cake reminded me of Germany. A lot of Germans love to bake cakes and serve them in the afternoon when they have guests. While I lived in Germany, I knew a lady that baked cakes almost every day! Some of my favorite German cakes are Bienenstich and Schwarzwald Torte. What’s your favorite cake?

    Back to this cake. Now is the perfect time to use all these peaches and bake something different than peach crumble or peach pie or peach ice cream.

    On our first Thanksgiving as a married couple (3 years ago), my husband and I planted 7 peach trees in our backyard/garden. They have grown so much since then. We saw some blooms this spring but no fruit yet. It takes a while for fruit trees to start bearing fruit. But I am hoping that next year we will have peaches. 🙂 And if we do, I will be making peach desserts probably every week. Yay! Love peaches!

    Oh, and this cake is also gluten, dairy and grain-free.

    This peach cherry upside down cake is a great treat, and I am sure you will love it! Enjoy!

    This is a beautiful recipe. Our German friends down the street are always baking. Can’t wait to share this recipe with them.


    I love love upside down cakes and this looks fabulous! love how moist it looks!

    Erika

    I have my cake in the oven but I’m wondering where the 1/2 cup of almond flour went. The recipe calls for 2 cups but in the directions I only see 1 1/2 cups. I put in the 2 cups since 1 1/2 seemed too runny.

      Hi Erika! I am sorry about that mistake! yes, 2 cups is correct. Thank you for pointing that out! I just updated the instructions.
