Ginger Peach upside down cake

Peaches are in season here and I'm loving them! I'm also loving this recipe I put together for Ginger Peach Upside Down Cake. Spicy ginger and sweet peaches are simply meant to be together. Think of them as best friends. They are awesome on their own, great with others, but when the two of them get together...Wow!
It makes me think of one of my best friends. She's like the ginger in our relationship, but not because of her gorgeous red hair- that's just a coincidence. I have always been drawn to her outgoing, spunky, personality. Whenever we get together, it's a fantastic time and crazy things can happen. I remember one time when we were young, she helped me smuggle home a kitten. My dad who was driving us didn't know, even when it began yowling! To this day, we still laugh at the idea of how crazy my dad must have thought we were as we suddenly began meowing and giggling uncontrollably in the back seat of the car! We have so many fun memories together; I can't help smiling when I think of her.  ...Ginger Peach Upside Down Cake is kind of like that, only in cake form. You will definitely smile when you taste it!

I made my cake in a 7x5 dish and it was the perfect size for me to enjoy with a friend and still have leftovers.  You may wish to double the recipe if you're making this for a larger group.

Share some with some of your best friends. It's fantastic with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream. Enjoy!
