Delicious Caramel Peach Upside Down Cake
- 1/4 cup butter softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups fresh peaches (about 3-4 peaches) sliced 1/2-in. slices, peeled, or 1 small can drained, or frozen unsweetened peach slices, thawed and large slices cut in half lengthwise
- 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1 large egg room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
Mix softened butter and brown sugar and spread evenly on the bottom of the 9×2 inch pie dish or round cake pan. (Make sure the pan is 2 inches deep) Arrange peaches in a pattern over sugar mixture. Set pan aside.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt
In a large bowl cream butter, sugar and vanilla extract, add egg and beat until light and fluffy, add dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk, beat on low until combined.
Spoon and spread over peaches.
Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes.
Run a knife around the sides, place a platter on top and invert the cake onto the platter.
If any of the peach slices stick to the pan, lift them off carefully and replace them on top of the cake. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
To make buttermilk, stir 1/2 cup milk with 1/2 Tbsp white vinegar and let stand for 10 min before using.
If you use a spring-form pan, you may want to consider lining the pan with a parchment paper and butter that as well. Because the butter and sugar mixture on the bottom could leak out while baking. You want it to caramelize and coat the peaches when you invert the pan.
