    I won't make this one again. I also had the caramel stick to my seasoned iron skillet. The cake was overly sweet and soggy. I'll use my tried and true upside down cake recipe next time.

    I baked this cake for my husband. He loves peach cobbler but I wanted to bake something different. The cake was a little too sweet but it was still very good. I didn't have any trouble with the caramelization. But it took more than 10 min. to caramelize. I prefered this cake to peach cobbler. We ate it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.I will make this cake again but I will use less sugar.

    This really sounded good, but it was way too sweet for my taste. I followed the recipe exactly and even went to the store to get cake flour. Too bad because I was looking forward to eating it! :(

    After reading the other reviews I debated on using less sugar but decided to go with the recipe as is. Wow. That certainly turned my world right side up. The sugar caramalized in 9 min 45 s so timing was spot on. I didn't think it was too sweet at all, just right actually. The only thing I did differently was use regular unbleached all purpose flour instead of cake flour because I had just gotten home from the grocery store. I don't think it could have made it any better tho. My husband loved it!

    This dessert was really really good, but I did not have an iron skillet or wooden spoon available which may be why the caramelization did not work for me. It hardened on the bottom of the Caphalon skillet I used. Since that layer was not on top it was not overly sweet as the first reviewer stated. I will try again with the other tools and hopefully be more successful with caramelizing.

    The recipe for this was fine. Mine turned out just like the photo in the magazine. It got rave reviews from the family. I served it with fresh whipped cream like the recipe suggested. I will definitely make it again.

    Loved this recipe! My family devoured it. The cake was light and airy, the caramelized peach topping was divine, and it was quite simple to make. Using a cast iron definitely helped with the caramelization, but watch the color so it doesn't burn. I used 1/2 cup sugar for the cake batter and less sugar for the topping and it turned out perfect. And my husband loved flipping the cake over for me. It's a sweet surprise and then you get to eat it! Highly recommend.
