Peach Cake Recipe with Fresh Peaches

Peach cake upside down is so fun, and easy to make. It’s just all about layering to get the fruit to literally bake right in. Place on the bottom and middle and once you flip it over you’ll see them on the top! Like our fresh peach dump cake but a bit more homemade this time. (affiliate links present)

Upside Down Peach Cake

Ok so if you have ever made a pineapple upside down cake you know kinda’ how it works. You just have to remember that the whole thing is going to be turned around and what is on the bottom will end up on top. That’s it. To make more of a caramelized sauce too you just mix brown sugar and butter, it’s that easy.

You could essentially do the same thing as we did in a muffin tin too if you wanted it to bake faster. Like peach upside down cupcakes of sorts. I mean if you think outside the box anything is possible. You could even use half peach and half pears for a mixture of the two.

Recipe Peach Cake

What can I do with too many fresh peaches?

This!! You can in fact make this a dairy free peach cake if need be. I have had to make this alteration at our house for my husband. I started with our dairy free banana bread bundt cake and it came out so well I knew I could do it with other fruits too. Country Crock and Lactaid offer dairy alternative products.

  • Brown sugar
  • White granulated sugar and cinnamon
  • Unsalted butter, melted, or use dairy free plant based alternative
  • Cream cheese softened, or lactose free variety
  • Eggs
  • All purpose flour and baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • Milk whole is best or plain almond milk or lactose variety works
  • 4 peaches sliced or 2 cans fruit drained is what I have used in our Apricot Cobbler
  • And a large bowl to blend the cake batter together

How to Make a Cake with Peaches

You’ll want a 9×13″ cake pan for this one. Spray it nicely with some non stick spray so it slides right out when done. The butter on the bottom will make that part easy but the sides will need a bit of a spray to it. If you want a similar creation but with far fewer ingredients you can follow our peach cobbler with cake mix recipe.

To make something similar in smaller form in a muffin tin I would follow our Peach Cobbler Muffins recipe. That uses fresh peaches as well which is nice.

Fresh Fruit cake

How to Make Peach Cake with Fresh Peaches

This is similar to our banana upside down cake, but with a different fruit. Preheat the oven to 360 F. Wash the peaches and cut into slices. If using canned fruit just drain the juices and use those. You may need 2 cans for one cake. Transfer half of the peaches to the bottom of a greased 9×13″ baking dish.

  • Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Melt 4 tbsp butter and drizzle half of it on top of the peaches.
  • Sprinkle half of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over that.
  • Beat the remaining softened butter with sugar until combined in a medium bowl.
  • Add room temperature cream cheese and beat for another minute on high speed.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating each time until combined, light and fluffy.
  • Blend flour mixture in a bowl with the baking powder and salt. Add to the bowl with wet ingredients slowly. The result should be a thick dough without lumps, which will slowly drain from a spoon slowly.
  • Pour half of the batter on top of the peaches in the pan.
  • Put the second half of the peaches on that batter, top with the remaining melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  • Pour the remaining half of the dough over the top. Cover the baking pan with foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes.

Once a toothpick in the center comes out clean remove and let it cool for 15 minutes in the pan, then carefully put a platter on top covering the pan and invert the baking dish onto that or a cutting board works too.

Upside Down Peach Cake

If you wanted to make a dump cake with canned fruit that would work too. The biggest difference is that yes it will be faster but the pieces start out much softer so they won’t stay together as well. With fresh it won’t break down as well since they start out firmer. I don’t bother peeling the skins off because, why??

How to Make a Cake with Fresh Fruit

What can you serve with this?? I mean it’s great as is but you could add a dollop of whipped cream, 1/4 cup of vanilla ice cream with it or sprinkle some powdered sugar on top too. We love fresh fruit desserts and this might be top on the list for sure.

If you do have leftovers it saves quite well. You do want to refrigerate it since there is produce in it and if you don’t it gets wet and icky, and could spoil easily. You’ll want to let it cool completely first and then move it into a container with a lid or covered with foil. It is best eaten again within 24 hours so it stays moist.

Peach Cake with Fresh Peaches

How do you reheat leftover cake?

Of course you can enjoy a slice of this as is cold but if you want it warmed I would suggest adding a bit of moisture. You can do this with a tbsp of maple syrup, honey, or a squirt of whipped cream on the top. Then heat in the microwave for 1 minute and that will keep right inside.

That is the best way to really revive it so it doesn’t feel dried out at all. If you used canned fruit you can save the juices and pour a bit of that on top too. That will give it more of an enhanced flavor….or a tbsp of peach schnapps would even work! I mean??? 😉

Can you use frozen peaches to make peach cake?

You could but you would want to defrost them first in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. You can use sliced fresh ripe peaches too like we did here with our cake with peaches which work great. With a moist crumb cinnamon mixture on top or plain it is a delicious treat.
