Peach Upside-down Cake

It’s farmers market season, and each week I end up buying more produce than I know what to do with. When the produce starts to over-ripe, I go into panic mode as to what I can make without having to waste anything. Last week I bought fresh peaches and ended up waiting too long to eat them. So, I decided to make peach upside-down cake with my over-ripe peaches and it turned out delicious! This makes for a great breakfast or dessert cake.

What you’ll need:

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

5 fresh peaches – peeled, pitted and quartered

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

 

Method:

In a medium bowl, melt 1/4 cup butter add brown sugar, cinnamon and peaches. Toss till peaches are coated and layer at bottom of cake pan.

In a large bowl (or mixer), mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour and baking soda to wet mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Spread batter evenly over peaches.

Bake at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes, or until lightly browned on top. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes; invert cake on serving plate. Serve warm or room temperature. Enjoy!
