Millions of Peaches

It's no surprise we went to another farm. This country girl loves to get out of the city and back to my roots! There are so many local farms a short drive from the city. We frequent Sauvie Island for many activities. Our favorite farm is Sauvie Island Farms. Its a one stop shop. Or should I say pick? They seriously have most everything. Berries, vegetables, tomatoes, corn, all kinds of flowers, herbs, peaches, and pears! I'm sure I'm missing something....

Peaches

a MUST for u-pick!


Whatever you're making will always taste better with fresh fruits and vegetables! Ill have to admit, I ate most peaches as is.

I managed to save a few to make a very special lady a Birthday cake. Peach upside down cake!

I'm gonna be real and disclose the fact that I was an upside down cake virgin. I realized I've never have the honor of making one of these beautiful cakes! I've been missing out on this not only easy but quick cake! I of course needed some guidance and looked toward a New York Times recipe https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/6355-peach-upside-down-cake . I definitely recommend it! I'll be making a pear version very soon! I may be making a brown sugar caramel as well.

My recommendation is to be sure you are using a 9 inch cake round. I happened to use a smaller round which caused the need to bake for longer. I lucked out and no burning happened. For all the pacing and worrying I did in my kitchen during the additional 30 minutes of bake time, this cake turned out perfect! I was happy to show up to our ladies night with an edible birthday treat! So, everyone makes mistakes! I'm sure glad I saw this one thru though.

Now take advantage of these cooler mornings and bake your self something incredible!

Cheers, Jocelyn!
