A reader actually put me on to the flavour combination of ginger and peach. Her suggestion helped to create what has become a much loved dessert at our house, Ginger Snap Peach Crumble.

Spouse loves her gingerbread, so with some wonderfully ripe and juicy Ontario peaches on hand, I decided to again combine the two flavours in this moist and delicious upside down cake. It was utterly delicious.

Fresh or frozen peaches both work well in this simple recipe idea.

I had the first piece warm from the oven with a dollop of vanilla whipped cream. Let me tell ya, it was a slice of comfort food heaven. Make it while summer peaches are at their best but truthfully, this is so good.

I know I’ll probably even try it with good quality canned or frozen peaches during the winter months. Makes an ideal brunch dessert too.

Can I use canned peaches for this recipe as I can’t always find good peaches here where I live? I am anxious to try this recipe as I love gingerbread.

Flavors are out of this world!!! Sadly, collapsed as I was taking it out of the pan, so it did not look as wonderful as it tasted... should I just leave it in the pan longer next time, before trying to tip it out?
