Instructions Checklist
  • Spread peach slices between several layers of paper towels and let dry, gently pressing occasionally and replacing any soaked towels, 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, pour melted butter over bottom of a 6-quart oval slow cooker. Stir together brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl and sprinkle over butter.

  • Arrange peaches in a tight layer over brown sugar. (You may need to make a partial second layer to fit them all in.)

  • Beat softened butter with white sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in almond extract.

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Working in batches, stir flour mixture into egg mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix batter until well combined. Spoon over peaches and spread evenly.

  • Drape paper towels over top of slow cooker (to absorb any condensation during baking), then cover with lid. Cook on High until a wooden skewer inserted into center of cake comes out clean, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

  • Remove lid and paper towels. Using oven mitts, remove ceramic liner from slow cooker and let cool 10 minutes. Run a knife around edge of cake and carefully turn out onto a serving platter.

I have made this twice, exactly as written. It is excellent! Cake is light and flavorful, peach topping is heavenly. I have used frozen peaches that I thawed out ahead of time. Edges will get crusty, but my family likes that and we fight over the crusty edge parts. Takes 2.5 hours in my 6 qt slow cooker. Never thought about making desserts in the slow cooker before, now I am sold! Read More

I not give stars because I didn’t yet but my slow cooker is a Ninja and I have the option to use like oven too, that mean went I will made sure I use the oven option. I don’t like the idea to make cake in slow cooker for long time. That made not caramelice the peach and I love caramelice upside down cake. Ok I give two stars for a while. Probable I use vanilla instead almond extract. Read More

I made this with wonderful fresh peaches and it was a hit. I did not increase the sugar and the cakewas as sweet as I would want it to be. So I would hesitate to use canned peaches in heavy sugar syrup with the same amount of sugar in this recipe but of course its a matter of taste. I do not have a large oval crockpot. I have a round full size crockpot as well as one with about half the capacity. So I put 2/3 of the recipe in the larger and the remaining 1/3 in the smaller. Cooked on high for the time indicated and it was perfect. I took the larger cake to our block party where it was well received and froze the smaller cake for a week to serve at a meeting. So I can attest that it freezes well at least short-term. Plan to keep this as a basic recipe to use with any fruit. Apples will be wonderful. Read More

The flavor of the cake was nice. It was a bit crumbly though. It did burn a bit around the edge by the time the inside was cooked and it never quite caramelized which was disappointing. Maybe I did something wrong? Peach was a nice twist on traditional so I will likely try again just to see if I messed up somehow. Read More

The cake was very tasty and light but my peaches were a little runny when I dumped it over on the tray. Maybe I didn't let them sit long enough on the paper towel? I don't like almond extract so I used vanilla, replaced the nutmeg with cinnamon, and I added chopped pecans. Everyone enjoyed it and since it wasn't the prettiest (I have added a pic) we could joke about how my dad would always say "should I eat it or did I eat it" when my mom made a dessert! Several people did question why it would be an advantage to cook a cake in a crock pot if you are not camping, and I didn't have an answer for that. Read More
