Mini Peach Upside-Down Cakes
Today I'm sharing for your taste bud's delight, a fresh peach upside-down cake that comes together in a snap.  If you haven't had a chance to make anything with peaches this year then this dessert is for you.  Peaches are one of my favorite kinds of fruits and since it is summer, I am able to find ones that are perfect - nice and juicy.  While I do love to eat them as is, they are also great to bake with.  This recipe also makes two - one for yourself (of course!) and one to share.  It's always best to share :)

The DIY Guy and I enjoyed these for dessert tonight but I also think they would be great for breakfast.  A nice, warm treat that would go perfectly with your cup of coffee in the morning.  Definitely worth getting out of bed for!

If you are looking for other peach recipes, last year I made a peach and blueberry tart and for something really easy, grilled peaches with honey and mascarpone cheese.  Be sure to get your peach fill before the "good" ones disappear from the store.

I'm a bit sad that summer seems to be winding down.  Yes, we are still getting some nice days but you can tell the air is changing.  Within the last week all 5 of my impatien plants died.  I have no idea why - they were watered good, so big and full too. Kinda sad!

While this recipe is good for two, be sure to double or triple it for when company comes.  I slightly adapted this recipe from Alton Brown's Good Eats - he calls that episode Peachy Keen - and it is!  If you really want to kick it up a notch, add some ice cream or whipped cream.  We ate ours 'naked'.

Start with fresh peaches.
