Peach Upside Down Cake
Soft, moist, and sweet, this upside-down peach cake is made with fresh or canned peaches and a simple homemade cake mix.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Place the butter and brown sugar into a 9″ round pan. Add to the preheated oven for about 3-4 minutes or until the butter is melted. Stir to combine.
Toss peach slices & flour in a small bowl if using fresh or frozen (canned peaches do not need flour). Arrange the peach slices in an even layer on top of the brown sugar. Set aside.
Combine sugar & melted butter in a large bowl. Stir in egg.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon & a pinch of salt.
Add flour mixture alternately with the milk to the butter mixture. Stir just until combined.
Spread the batter over the peach slices and bake 32-36 minutes or just until a toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from the oven, let cool in the pan 15-20 minutes. Run a knife along the edge of the cake and invert onto a platter. Serve warm with ice cream if desired.
