Peach upside-down cake

yummy peach upside down cake with caramelized honey

 

Don’t you just love Ontario peaches? Fragrant, bursting with juicy flavour, and available right now!
If you have overbought (like I sometimes do) and are looking for something to make with fresh peaches, why not try a peach upside-down cake? This version uses only honey as a sweetener, not sugar. There’s something about the combination of caramelised honey and peaches that I find irresistible. This particular cake is made with spelt flour, which means it’s best eaten right away as it will really toughen up if left for a few days. You can just as easily use all purpose flour if you like.
