Nectarine Upside Down Cake

Nectarine Upside Down Cake created by Baby Kato

My husband only likes very firm, hard nectarines. When we end up with too many softer ones (the way most people like them), I make this recipe. It's great warm or at room temperature for brunch or dessert.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar and cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Transfer to 9" round cake pan and spread evenly. Arrange nectarine slices over top in concentric circles in pan. If using large nectarines, you will only need 2 nectarines and will make two overlapping circles. If using smaller nectarines, you may need 3 nectarines and have more circles.
  • Beat butter until creamy. Add sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add egg substitute or eggs and beat until blended. If using egg substitute, the mixture may look slightly curdled. Stir in milk and vanilla, blending well. Stir together dry ingredients; add to batter and mix on low speed just until blended. Batter is not very thick.
  • Spread batter evenly over nectarines. Bake cake until wooden pick tests clean, about 30-35 minutes. Let cool on wire rack 10 minutes, then invert onto serving platter. Cut into wedges to serve.
  • This is great, warm, for brunch. For dessert, I sometimes add slightly sweetened whipped cream.

    I cut the sugar in the cake in half, it was still plenty sweet. I also added some lemon zest and doubled the vanilla and I think the next time I'll add some cinnamon too. Very easy recipe and one I will definitely make again!

    I really liked this recipe, and so did the people at the office. Perfect for overly ripe fruit! The one thing I did change was to reduce the sugar in the cake to 2/3 of a cup.

    What a terrific cake. It was perfection. Moist, tender, light, fluffy and full of flavor. The crumb was excellent. The cake was a lovely bed for the beautiful nectarines and brown sugar. Yummmo. I'm so glad that I found this recipe, it is awesome. My dh bought a basket of nectarines and they went soft very quickly, he asked me to make him something and this delicious treat was what I choose. Thank you for sharing my new go to cake for nectarines. Kudos on making it into my Favorites Cookbook for 2012.
