How to Make an Upside Down Cake
Typically, upside down cakes are made with canned pineapple cut into rings with maraschino cherries in their centers. The cake is made upside down, with a brown sugar glaze poured into the bottom of a pan, pineapples and cherries added, then the cake batter is poured on top.
Once the cake is baked, it's flipped upside down so the pineapples, cherries and glaze are now on top. This is one of those classic American cakes that can be used as a base for loads of flavor and fruit variations.
With this version, we use fresh peaches (frozen may also be used) and instead of a brown sugar glaze, we pair those juicy peaches with a rich brown sugar caramel. This flavor combo works so well together
Achieving a Moist cake that's not overly dense
Cake flour has less protein than all-purpose, keeping the cake light in density with a fine crumb. All-purpose is needed to give the cake structure, therefore, equal amounts of both flours are used here.
