Peach, Raspberry and Banana Upside Down Cake

May 22nd, 2007  | Category: Cakes, Fruit


To tell you the truth, the heading for this post was supposed to be "Baker's Block". I have ruined way too many recipes last week. I hope this is just a temporary phase.

After reading through last month's Sugar High Friday posts at Delicious Days, I couldn't resist making my own jam. This was going to be my first, so I tried to read through most of the entries and jam making secrets from several websites. I was specifically looking for a peach jam recipe, because I knew that the sugar-fruit ratio vary according to type and ripeness of the fruit. ...
