Nectarine Upside Down Cake

Vibrant fresh nectarines set into a buttery cake base will make all your dreams come true!

Makes: 1 x 23cm round cake
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour
  • 3 large nectarines, cut into wedges
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 125g unsalted butter, melted
  • CAKE
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 125g butter, melted
  • toasted slivered almonds, for sprinkling, optional

Butter and line a 23cm round cake tin and arrange nectarines on the base. Sprinkle with sugar and pour over melted butter.

Beat eggs, vanilla and sugar for 10 minutes until thick and creamy. Sift flour and baking powder on top and fold in gently. Stir in milk and melted butter. Pour over nectarines in cake pan and bake at 180°C for 45 minutes - 1 hour or until golden brown. This cake colours quickly and so may need to be loosely covered with foil to complete cooking. Allow to stand 5 minutes before turning out upside down onto a serving plate. Serve sprinkled with toasted almonds.
