This single layer Peach Upside Down Cake is a nod to the ever-popular and classic Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Using peaches that abundant in the South during the summer was a logical choice for updating this classic.

Peach Upside Down Cake Tips

  1. First, you can easily whisk this by hand and fore-go getting that heavy mixer out.
  2. Also, you can use pears, plums, nectarines, or apples instead of the peaches in this recipe.
  3. I recommend using real butter.
  4. The time given is for baking in a 9-inch cake pan. However, you can use an 8-inch. It will need to cook slightly longer. You can also use a cast-iron skillet.
  5. You can use fresh or frozen peaches. I have not tried it with canned, but feel confident they’ll work too.
  6. Also, brown sugar gives more flavor, but you can use granulated white sugar.
  7. The peaches do need to be cut 1/2-inch or thinner. I find that they sink into the cake more than I like when they’re cut thicker than that.
  8. Allow the cake to cool 5 to 10 minutes before flipping it onto a serving tray. However, do not let it cool completely or it’ll most likely stick. I find using oven mitts much easier to use than potholders.

How to Make this Recipe

Slice your peaches less than 1/2-inch thick. Melt your butter. Pour the butter into your pan, sprinkle the sugar over it, and arrange the peaches in a single layer. You can cover the entire bottom of the cake pan. (However, I didn’t have enough so I made a pretty pattern and went with it.) Mix the batter and spoon it over the peaches begin careful not to disturb your pattern. Bake. Cool. Flip. Eat!

 

I enjoy eating this cake warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
