Upside Down Peach Pudding

Having made a Peachy Sweet and Sour ChickenĀ I found myself with tinned peaches left over. What to do? I decided that as I had already broken the rule of putting pineapple in the sweet and sour sauce, why not do the same with an upside down cake?

A nice cake to serve hot for pudding with custard. The sponge should be nice and moist for you to also serve cold as a slice of cake.
