TWD: Nectarine Upside-down Chiffon Cake

Labor Day weekend was pretty slow for me. I was a sloth. I couldn't get myself off the couch. I mean...I did get a lot done, I guess. Well, a lot done for being glued to the couch.

I finally got off my butt and made this yummy cake. I really enjoyed the chiffon cake. I loved the super fluffiness of it and how it tasted like angel food cake but not as sweet.

I'm not sure if I'll make it again. I wasn't super impressed by it. I think it was due to the streusel being in the middle of the fluff. However, I did like the combination of the ginger and cinnamon with the nectarines. If I end up making it again, I would probably change up the layering of the items. Maybe even take the nectarines out and make into an ice cream. MmmMM a sweet caramel topping on a chiffon cake and a scoop of nectarine or peach ice cream with generous amounts of streusel on top. Yum.

Yeah...maybe I'll try that.

For the recipe, check out Marlise' blog, The Double Trouble Kitchen, or Susan's blog, The Little French Bakery. They were this week's hosts!


  1. Sounds like a great, delicious project!

  2. I used half apples and half nectarines and I am so glad I did. I didn't want to make this cake but I am glad I did. I won't make it again ... too many other recipes that I will like better! Blessings, Catherine http://praycookblog.com/2012/09/twd-bwj-nectarine-upside-down-chiffon-cake/

  3. I think we need sloth weekends every once in a while.. Just sayin'
    Your cake looks good!
