  • 1/4 cup (55g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup (100g) packed brown sugar
  • 2-3 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups (190g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch round cake pan and set it aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and brown sugar. Spread this mixture evenly over the bottom of the prepared cake pan.
  3. Arrange the sliced peaches on top of the butter and sugar mixture in a single layer. You can create a decorative pattern if desired.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  5. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  6. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  7. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  8. Pour the batter over the peaches in the cake pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  10. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting it onto a serving plate. Gently remove the pan and allow the cake to cool completely before slicing and serving.
  11. Enjoy your delicious peach upside down cake with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
