What is this?

You may wonder why there are blueberries in this peach upside-down cake. The answer: I put them there.

In the highly unlikely event that you aren’t aware, peaches and blueberries are good friends. I would argue, best friends. Add summer to the mix and well, you pretty much have a miracle on your hands. This miracle came about on a hot summer day, in August, to be more precise.

I came into the great fortune of some of the biggest, juiciest, and most mouthwatering peaches I have ever tasted. The same day, I came across an equal lot of blueberries. Holy summer!

It is not a coincidence that we have put these best friends together in the same recipe before—a couple of times.

We’ll put together a few more peach recipes and a few more blueberry recipes before the last song of summer has been sung. If a few berries end up with peaches (or vice versa), do not be surprised. It’s my summer. This is my fruit. I’ll eat them any way I please.  Hope you enjoy it!  -Dan
