Golden Treasure Upside-Down Cake

from The American Home magazine February 1958


I took it easy on the victims this week and made a 'normal' dessert. No jello, no marshmallows, no condensed soups, no hidden ingredients. It is a simple spice cake (from a mix) with the only twist being it is a peach upside down cake. I got the recipe from an ad peddling canned cling peaches:


My 'superb' upside-down cake
(at least the recipe in the magazine promised that)

Recipe:

****************************************************
Golden Treasure Upside-Down Cake

1 spice cake mix
1 1/2- 2 cups sliced cling peaches
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar

Melt butter, mix in brown sugar and pour into bottom of greased ring mold. Arrange drained canned peach slices round bottom of the mold. Pour in spice cake mix (prepared as directed). Bake about 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

*****************************************************

The cake was very good and simple to make. The peaches along the top give it an "ohh la la" presentation, which I am completely into. Highly recommended for your next lady's bridge gathering or Mexican-wrestlers-are-dreamy fan club meeting.

Wonderful! I was trying to find a recipe similar to this the other day, the spice cake part is an interesting variation I'll have to try.
