  • About

This wonderful cake with caramelized peaches was probably inspired by the famous French tarte Tatin, in which apples are cooked in caramel, covered with pastry before being baked, and then inverted so that the caramelized apples lie on top of the pastry.

Here, butter and sugar are combined and placed in the bottom of a pan, the peaches are arranged on top, and a light cake batter is then spooned over, a little like an American upside-down cake.
