Upside down peach sponge

HIM and I had some unexpected houseguests previously… 2 strapping young Italian lads (one of which is a friend of HIM’s and has recently opened up his own restaurant in Italy).

What I love about a Felice (Happy) is that he loves my baking…. (see – mutual love and all that…:)..)

So when I knew that he (and a friend) were staying with us for a few days – I couldn’t help but whip up a cake for them to nibble on. (Inspired by the 94DR concept of making sure that there is something to go with the morning, afternoon or evening cup (or three) of espresso coffee!)

I also had another reason for baking this cake – and that was because I had a pile of VERY ripe peaches in the fruit bowl that were in dire need of either being made into jam or baked!!!!!!! So googlebox it was…. and I found this recipe on the BBC Good Food website (where else!). I adapted the recipe somewhat – as I used fresh peaches instead of their canned counterparts and I omitted the raspberries

This is one of the simplest recipes that you will EVER encounter – REALLY
