You guys, Happy Monday!

Please excuse this photo-shoot fail. I had to rush. Kids were screaming, laundry was piling, stomach was growling, and there was ricotta cake in mah face.

By the way, this recipe?? Brought to you by; because I missed cake…a lot! 

Let’s be real. Summer is ON full force. I don’t care if Target went back-to-school-supplies-crazy, and that my Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls recipe was the most visited page on zee bloggy these past few days. I don’t see any of that. And I’m not in denial. FALL is NOT here. Yet.

Let’s continue to celebrate summer with peaches. On a cake!
I just don’t think life would be rightly fair if we went an entire summer without cake, you know?

The other day, I sat above the sink for about 5.38 minutes, eating peaches. I’m a little OCD about clean floors and such, so licking the peach-juice off my hands above the sink is usually the thing I do.

There I was, slurping the juice and munching on the sweet, a bit sour, perfectly firm peach when it just clicked. I need cake – said the little voice in my head. I tried to ignore it, but it’s MUCHO bigger than me.
And having Wilson-Phillips on repeat inspired me even more to make it. Not sure how 90’s music and peaches relate, but it is what it is.

In other words… I don’t know how else to say this, and I don’t wanna beg, buuuut, meet your new favorite upside-down ricotta cake!  I know, that was very obnoxious, but I really like it!! It feels good, it smells SO good, and it tastes SO, SO, SO GOOD! Was that good enough to make you wanna make it YOUR new favorite cake??

Here’s the plan. I know it’s hot, but fire up the oven and go downstairs to do laundry while the cake bakes. It’s always cold downstairs. Then, when you come back up, you can eat cake while folding laundry. FUUUUUN! {insert sarcasm emoji here}
Just what you thought grown-up life would be like… Keep dreaming BIG!

Let’s have a great week!

    Just made this, but the dough was really dry.. There aren’t really any wet ingredients in the recipe! My cake is in the oven and I’m really hoping it turns out.
    You should leave a note that the springform needs a baking sheet and foil, in (or at the top) of the recipe. I didn’t see the note till it was too late.

      Hi Andrea! I will definitely make a “note” at the top – thanks for the input!!
      The ratio, dry to wet, is perfect. Did you have a chance to try it, yet? Let me know how it goes!

    If this is a photo-shoot fail, all my posts are high school dropouts. :p

    This cake is luscious!! And thank you for sticking to the calendar; there’s still a lot of summer left.

    How this is a photo-shoot fail, I have no idea! It’s beautiful, those pink and purple hues are just so pretty!

    Photography fail? I think not! The white peaches have been so amazing this year. And, yeah, fall is like two months away. And I’m hoping for a really warm fall and winter. Fingers crossed!

    Photo shoot fail? Girlfriend I was thinking how GORG these photos were and then I read that.
    I am obsessed with using ricotta in baked goods, and this baby is calling my name! Pinned!
