I haven't seen any cranberries around my grocery store quite yet, so I had to improvise this week and take advantage of the last of the summer-fruit bounty. I had some gorgeous, plump white peaches that fit the bill. I did a mini-happy-dance when I flipped the cake over and it unmolded perfectly - not a single stuck peach slice! However, since I used white peaches, the fruit didn't stand out the way I would have like it to. Cranberries would have been much prettier.
The nutty, caramel topping that gets poured into the pan before the peaches and the batter was a definite winner in my books. It suited the cake and fruit flavors to a tee. I imagine this recipe working well with any fruit - berries, apple, plums?
Sabrina of Superfluous chose Cranberry Upside-Downer on page 206 for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie bake-along recipe. Check out her blog for the recipe.
