Lesson Learned Today - Peach Upside Down Cake

Everyday I learn something new.  Some times it is a good lesson; some times not.

Today I learned, yet again, a good life lesson.  

Never stray from the recipe.  At least I should never stray from the recipe.

Many years ago, early into my marriage I tried my best to be a good, creative cook.  It was not good; creative, but not good.  My cooking was not even close to good.  

My husband, being a good sport never criticized the food I prepared.  He asked if I wanted to eat out a lot but never said a negative word.

Fast forward 20 years.  I learned  to cook, read the recipe, follow the recipe, and make the recipe.  At least I thought I had learned my lesson.

It is peach season here and my mother-in-law (a phenominal cook, by the way) gave me a lug of peaches.  I thought I'd make a lovely peach upside down cake.  Great idea and a great recipe.

However, I decided to stray from the receipe to change things up.  I was overly confident.  I changed the flour to almond flour and buttermilk to almond milk.  Epic fail!

My cake turned into a runny mess which clogged the kitchen sink disposal.  Yup, I created a mess!  Hubby was not happy to learn I had clogged the sink too.  Oopps

Starting over, I followed the recipe exactly.  Guess what?  It turned out amazing!

Here is the lovely peach upside down cake recipe I used.  Enjoy!
