Peach Upside Down Cake
CAKES FOR ALL SEASONS & REASONS
Now, let's get down to basics…. If you're thinking of serving a special
treat for the holidays, a birthday, anniversary, or just a simple
dessert for after the dinner meal, can anything fit the bill better than
CAKE? Of course not! There are just too many wonderful recipes and
tastes in today's world to even try and resist.
If watching your fat intake, SPONGE CAKE is the smart and healthy choice. It is easy
to prepare, and full of more air than calories. Several well beaten egg
whites, will give this cake a delightful spongy affect when baked with
flour, sugar, soda, and a dash of salt.
If you're not worried about calories, then go for homemade CHEESECAKE. It's
wonderfully rich and tasty. Full of cream cheese, eggs, sugar, Borden's
condensed milk, and baked in a graham cracker crust. What could be better?
And then there's CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPES, deep, rich, lovely chocolate. If you
took a survey of people who hate chocolate, the count would most
assuredly be under one tenth of one percent. So how can you fail in
baking a chocolate cake for friends and family?
In the fall season when fruits are in abundance, there are all sorts of
fruit you can add to upside down cakes. Delicious peach, apple, pear,
prune, and apricot flavors add to the taste of FRUITCAKE. (And I don't
mean dried fruit in those horrid Christmas cakes.) Raspberry,
huckleberry, boysenberry, cherry, etc., are also great tastes to savor
in tortes and cakes.
In today's modern cookbooks, on the internet, or in viewing television's
favorite cooking programs, one can easily find the perfect cake for any
occasion. So go straight to the kitchen and rattle those baking dishes
back into good use. Your family will love these delicious cakes. Here at

Healthy Homemade Cake Recipe Tips
When Baking with Butter:
Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the
biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68°
to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat
will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool”
butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a
bowl for 5 minutes before beating.
When Mixing Cake Batter:
You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the
flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a
quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until
there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the
batter is completely smooth.
Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and
higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure
a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake
flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2
tablespoons per cup.
The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect
on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and
transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By
making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly
reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing
global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food.
