Amaretto Peach Upside Down Pound Cake is bursting with flavor. Two classic cake recipes collide with this perfect dessert. This cake recipe is buttery, tender, and has a fine crumb and a caramelized brown sugar and peach topping!
I used my popular Whipping Cream Pound Cake recipe as the base for this deliciousness. As well, I added brown sugar, butter and peach slices for an upside-down topping. The brown sugar and butter caramelize and melt into the cake along with peach juice.

How do you make a pound cake?
- One of the most important tips is to Calibrate your oven.
- Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. The color will a pale yellow. You must use real butter. Margarine will not have the same results.
- Next, mix in the room temperature eggs one at a time until they disappear into the batter.
- The next step is to add the room temperature whipping cream alternately with the flour until mixed together and smooth. Room temperature ingredients are a must for a fluffy cake.
- Pour the batter into a well-greased baking pan and bake until cooked through.
Most noteworthy, because I didn’t want to take any chances of this cake sticking in the pan. I lined the bottom with parchment paper. To do this, trace around the outside and inside of my pan then cut the doughnut-shaped liner out. Next, grease the pan with solid vegetable shortening and place the cut-out in the bottom. Finally, rub more shortening over the parchment paper.
As you can see, the cake came out beautifully.

Amaretto Peach Upside Down Pound Cake
- 4 tablespoons butter unsalted, melted
- ½ cup brown sugar packed
- 12 thin slices peach about ¼-inch thick, if the peaches are too thick they'll sink into the cake.
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Prepare a 12 cup bundt or tube pan with Wilton Cake Release or grease then flour or sugar. I dust it with granulated sugar after I grease it with Crisco shortening. The sugar doesn't leave white areas in the cake. As added security to prevent this cake from sticking, I lined the bottom of the pan with parchment paper after greasing the pan. I then greased the parchment paper.
- Pour 4 tablespoons melted butter in the bottom of the prepared pan then sprinkle the butter with 1/2 cup brown sugar. Over the brown sugar lay the peach slices and press into the brown sugar.
For the Cake
- Add flour and heavy cream alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Scrape sides. Add vanilla and Amaretto and mix on low to medium until well combined.
- Pour batter over the peach slices in the prepared tube or bundt pan. Bake for 1 hour 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes before inverting onto a serving tray.
- Serve warm or room temperature. Great served with vanilla ice cream.
- Cool completely before covering. Store in an airtight container on the countertop for 4 days or in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
